L’Wren had planned on closing her fashion business

Two days after the designers death, it had been revealed that L’Wren Scott had planned on announcing the closure of her business today.

According to friend and fashion critic Cathy Horyn, Scott like many small designers had difficulties in managing her business.

Horyn said their friendship was tested as a result of the advice she had given Scott regarding her business problems last year.

“After hearing her troubles, I told her she should give herself a time limit to resolve matters or get out. Putting her health in jeopardy because of stress was not worth it, I told her.”

Horyn said she only learnt about Scott’s business decision after hearing about the designer’s death.

“Still, as painful as the decision must have been for her, I wouldn’t draw any conclusions from it about her state of mind.”

Horyn also said to rumours surrounding a possible break up between L’Wren and her Rolling Stones partner Mick Jagger were “rubbish”.
