Stella McCartney has remembered her late mother Linda on her birthday by unveiling a lingerie set to raise awareness of breast cancer.
The designer’s mother, the wife of Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney, died in 1998 at the age of 56 after battling the disease for three years. She would have turned 77 on September 24.
Stella shared a black and white image of Linda on Instagram to mark the day, and wrote: “This light guided me through my childhood years and into the woman I am today… “She is with me and in all I do, a true change agent that was so ahead of her time that she will never truly have known how she inspired so many people… a naturally beautiful, kind and loving woman… I celebrate you mum.
“Every single day in my children’s faces and innocence I see you and I will hold you in my heart on this day, your birthday… lovely Linda, you are loved and missed more than I could ever put into words xx.”
