Our hearts were broken on Monday when we learned of the tragic and sudden passing of L'Wren Scott. The 49-year-old fashion designer and partner to Mick Jagger was found dead in her New York City apartment as a result of what was declared a suicide.
Now, four days after her passing, Scott's business has responded:
"The figures quoted in the media regarding the financial status of LS Fashion Limited are not only highly misleading and inaccurate but also extremely hurtful and disrespectful to the memory of L'Wren Scott . . . As a private business, details of income and turnover are not publicly disclosed, however it can be said that the long-term prospects for the business were encouraging. Ms. Scott was very focused on doing what was right for her global business and for the support of her team."
Earlier in the week, Mick also released a statement on his website:
"I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her."
Their reactions join those from designers and editors who immediately turned to Twitter when the news broke to remember Scott and offer their condolences. Our thoughts are with her friends and family.
So sad to hear of the death of L'Wren Scott. What a beautiful woman and an incredible designer.
