Sir Paul to back Stella as she unveils collection at LIPA catwalk spectacular.

STELLA McCARTNEY last night spoke of her excitement at unveiling her autumn/ winter 08 collection in Liverpool, in a one-off catwalk show this weekend.

The acclaimed fashion designer will mark the city's year as Europe's Capital of Culture with a special event at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.

She said: "If it was not for that city, I would not be here.

"The city has been through a lot and still has more to give! I can't wait for the event at LIPA on Sunday."

All proceeds will go to LIPA, the performing arts institute founded by her father, Sir Paul.

Sir Paul will be at his daughter's show in the Paul McCartney auditorium, hours before taking to the stage at Anfield for his Liverpool Sound concert.

It will be followed by a Champagne reception with catering by top local restaurant 60 Hope Street.

The former Beatle said it would be a busy day on Sunday, but joked: "What's a dad to do?"

Sir Paul has also revealed the backstage crew at Anfield will be tucking into vegetarian fare - but those enjoying hospitality in the stands will not face any restrictions.

There had been a suggestion the committed vegetarian had asked for corporate catering to cut out meat from its menus.

Tickets for the fashion show are still on sale at Cricket, on Mathew Street, or call 0151 227 4645 x22.
