L'Wren

As you may know the highly successful designer , model and business woman , L'Wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide on Monday morning.
Although I was never L'Wren's most devoted fan , I have always admired her work from a distance. I'm not going to pretend that she was always my favourite designer but she was a talented and valued model , designer and human being.
My favourite collection of hers was entitled "Yorkshire Pudding" ( S/S13) , in this collection she explored minimalist designs and colours as well as more extravagant detailed pieces.

As highlighted by Dazed Digital ,it emerged from the news coverage of L'Wren's death that the most important thing about her was being "the girlfriend of Mick Jagger". Highlighting that even in today's society many successful and important women are still only recognised as their partner's girlfriend or wife.
The magazine had picked out a few tweets expressing their disappointment with the media:
L'wren Scott had a name. She was also a fashion designer. @BBCNews should be ashamed of report saying "Mick Jagger's girlfriend" has died.
So sad that in media reports today, she was reduced to "the girlfriend of". L'Wren Scott was an accomplished designer & businesswomen.
