It seems that suicide has taken another life, yesterday Monday March 17th, L'Wren Scott was found dead in her apartment in New York City.
Monday morning around 10:00 a.m. her assistant arrived at L'Wren's apartment and found her dead hanging from a door knob. She immediately called the police and an autopsy will later determine the cause of death. There was no sign or forced entry. The assistant had received a text message from L'Wren saying to "come by".
Scott is not only known for her fashion and earlier modeling career but also as the girlfriend to Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones for over a decade. Scott has dressed celebrities such as Madonna, and has also created many of Mick Jagger's stage looks for The Stones' 50th Anniversary Tour.
L'Wren Scott also launched a line for Banana Republic which came out late last year. Her clothing was more high fashion then ready to wear but took the opportunity to create classic and fun and elegant looks for Banana Republic.
On hearing the news Mick Jagger was devastated and the band has since cancelled their show tomorrow night March 19th in Perth.
It is always sad to see suicide take a life and especially in our design community. L'Wren Scott will be deeply missed and all of our thoughts are with her family and friends.
