Mick Jagger Establishes L’Wren Scott Scholarship

Last year the fashion world was shocked at the early passing of L?Wren Scott, the supermodel turned designer and long term girlfriend of Mick Jagger.

The outpouring of grief following the 49-year-old’s suicide was unanimous in its disbelief and sadness at the loss of such a talent.

Thanks to Jagger, there will now be a three-year scholarship programme dedicated to Scott’s memory at Central Saint Martins, the famous fashion school in London where she also showed her collections at Fashion Week. Scott was a huge admirer of Louise Wilson, the former MA Fashion director who also died last year. The scholarship will be awarded to one MA student every year and will cover fees as well as some living expenses.

In a statement Fabio Piras, the course director of MA Fashion, thanked the Rolling Stones front man, and said, “Our students sacrifice much to take up this course and work extremely hard while they are here. I am very proud of the fact that this course, through its alumni, continues to be recognised as a major contributor to the future of the global fashion industry.”

Here’s to L?Wren and her beautiful and elegant legacy.
