“If you don’t feel good in it, don’t wear it. Because it will never look good. Any hesitation in the fitting room and just walk away.”

These were the wise words spoken by L’Wren Scott in 2012 during an interview with the Telegraph and the three short sentences demonstrate what an intuitive designer she was.

The former model, stylist and designer was found dead in her New York apartment yesterday, marking a tragic and untimely end to a bright talent.

L’Wren Scott launched her first collection in 2006 entitled ‘Little Black Dress’ and she amassed a strong celebrity following after this.

“I think L’Wren has an extraordinary ability to make dresses that genuinely flatter a woman”, once said Sarah Jessica Parker of the designer.

49-year-old L’Wren had recently launched a collection with affordable American clothing line Banana Republic, making her designs accessible for all budgets.

“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,

She understood women and their foibles, qualms and insecurities which meant her designs were lauded and appreciated by many.

A huge loss to the fashion world, we will leave you with another of her insightful quotes.

“I’ve never met a woman who thinks they’ve got a good enough figure – however perfect they look – which is sad because no one else can see these perceived flaws; they’re entirely internal” – L’Wren Scott.
