A new award honouring emerging fashion designers has been named for L'Wren Scott, who reportedly left her $9 million US estate to her longtime partner, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
The award was created by The Art of Elysium, an organization that brings the arts to hospitalized children.
The L'Wren Scott Amber Award honours both Scott, who committed suicide on March 17, and Amber, a child who had a brain tumour and who participated in The Art of Elysium's fashion workshops for hospitalized kids.
The venture was announced Thursday by the New York company that handled the 49-year-old designer's public relations, PR Consulting.
