Gerade eben erst entdeckte ich dieses Video der Vogue auf Fashiontube. Ach, es ist so schade. So eine elegante wie stilvolle Frau verschwindet aus dem Leben.
In der Presse wird nun als Motiv für ihren Freitod kolportiert, dass sie finanzielle Sorgen plagten. Ihre Firma habe zwei Jahre in Folge Verluste gemacht in mehrstelliger Millionenhöhe. Dies wird von den Verantwortlichen des Unternehmens widersprochen. Hier ein Auszug aus einem offiziellen Schreiben, das ich auf der Page der englischen Vogue gefunden habe:
“The figures quoted in the media regarding the financial status of LS Fashion Limited are not only highly misleading and inaccurate but also extremely hurtful and disrespectful to the memory of L’Wren Scott. Ms Scott was considering a re-structure of her global business. The L’Wren Scott business consists of a wholesale business of ready-to-wear womenswear, a bespoke couture business for private clients, a licensing business, Ms Scott’s globally recognised work as a fashion consultant and stylist and her collaborations, such as her recent collection for Banana Republic. Her business overall was only seven-years-old and, although some areas of the business had not yet reached their potential, other parts of her business were proving successful. As a private business, details of income and turnover are not publicly disclosed, however it can be said that the long-term prospects for the business were encouraging. Ms Scott was very focused on doing what was right for her global business and for the support of her team.”
“In terms of figures shown at Companies House in the UK, the parent company of LS Fashion Limited based in America had made a standard loan investment to the UK subsidiary. LS Fashion Limited is fully able to meet the company’s liabilities and pay all suppliers and customers.”
