How Do You Say: L'Wren Scott

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In a new series, we're brushing up on our fashion diction with a little help from our friends. Today, we get a lesson in L'Wren Scott. A former stylist and costume designer, the Utah-born Scott is best known for her red carpet gowns. She got her start as a designer by making her own clothes as a teenager, since at 6'3 she was having trouble finding clothes to fit her. That experience translates to Scott's current line—she prides herself on making clothes for all body types. CFDA CEO Steven Kolb teaches us all how to say her name after the jump.
