Tragedy strikes the fashion world today, as designer L'Wren Scott was found dead of an apparent suicide in her apartment. According to a report by the New York Daily News, her assistant found Scott's body hanged in her apartment. Foul play has been ruled out at this moment. Earlier this season, she canceled her London Fashion Week show due to production issues concerning her finale pieces.
She is most famous for her fantastical take on red-carpet dresses and was also known as Mick Jagger's long-term girlfriend. Jagger is currently on tour, and the BBC has reported that he is "shocked and devastated." The fashion world has lost an icon. We will report as we hear more news. (New York Daily News)
It is important for anyone who is suffering from thoughts of suicide to know that they have help. If you or someone you know is struggling, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
