L’Wren Scott acquired her highly specific eye for clothes backstage, on set and in the wardrobe departments of film studios. Developed through years of hands-on experience collaborating with designers and dressing personal clients, her unerring instinct for making women look good on camera has won her a reputation as one of the most sought after — and discreet — stylists in the business.
Born in Utah, L’Wren Scott’s love of clothes began at the sewing machine. As a tall teenager, she took her first steps in image making by making her own clothes. Her look got noticed. Taking off to Paris as a model, she eventually found herself far more absorbed by the skills and artistry of dress making than walking the runway. After moving to LA she began to work as a stylist and acquired prestigious commissions as a creative director for fashion advertising campaigns, as well as working as a costume designer for film.
Throughout all this, she quietly flexed her creativity in other directions. Her affinity for picking the perfect jewel for the right dress led to a desire to start designing them. Finally, she has taken the experience of years of privately designing special dresses to the next level. Her collection is a tightly edited expression of her taste for fiercely feminine, exceptionally made clothes, and is available in the most exclusive retailers in the fashion capitals of the world. In the five years since its launch, the brand has developed a loyal following, counting some of the most influential women in the world as clients.
L’Wren Scott has nixed the traditional notion of seasons, opting instead to name her collections. Launched in 2006, the first collection titled, Little Black Dress, started with the idea of wearable, versatile pieces — entirely in black. The fall/winter 2009 collection, Bois de Boulogne, marked the launch of her signature, Italian-made shoes. For the holiday 2010 season, L’Wren Scott collaborated with Lancôme and their artistic director Aaron de Mey to launch a make-up line inspired by that season’s show: smoky eyes, lacquered tones of grey and deep burgundy varnishes. Most recently, L’Wren Scott introduced the Lula bag collection — a line of classic frame bags available in various sizes and exotic skins, debuting exclusively at Barneys stores.
The label is built upon a philosophy of timeless style, rejecting the concept of trends in favor of creating versatile, classic pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways and environments. Famed for their sexy silhouettes, L’Wren Scott’s pieces are both intricate and unique in their construction, using her experience of dressing all kinds of body types in order to sculpt and flatter the body. These collections are for the customer who appreciates real luxury, beautiful fabrics and the perfect detail.BACK
