Another tragic passing has occurred in the fashion industry with the death of renowned designer, L’Wren Scott.
I had always loved L’Wren Scott’s beautiful line. Her pieces were always the right balance between elegance and glamour. They were made to make a woman feel powerful and like no one could bring down. And, this injection of strong female empowerment that was so prevalent in her design aesthetic came from Scott being the embodiment of what the clothes represented.
The first time I had seen Scott was at Fashionista.com‘s conference “How To Make It Fashion” last November. She headlined the conference and gave a presentation about herself, her journey and her success. To say I was inspired would be an understatement.
The fashion industry is a tough industry to be a part of. You really have to be strong in your determination to make it. Throughout my foray into finding my spot in this industry, there have been moments where I wanted to give up and pursue something simpler. Without fail, every time one of these moments has come up, there has been someone in the industry who says something that inspires me and pushes me to keep chasing my dreams.
