I saw an article last week in the Daily Mail about the one and only wedding dress ever designed by L’Wren Scott, who died this past march. It was commissioned by her friend JoJo Cohen and L’Wren collaborated with both milliner Stephen Jones, who made the veil, and the Royal School of Needlework in London, who embroidered the dress. The Royal School of Needlework, you may remember, also did the embroidery on Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. They do stunning work.

The dress is gorgeous and appears in the current issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.

At the end of the article there was also a short video, which broke my heart, showing L’Wren’s excitement at working with the ladies of the Royal School of Needlework. It was filmed in January of this year and L’Wren seems so happy, so joyous to see the dress in its various stages of creation that I find myself, once again, at a loss to understand why she would take her life.
Instead of focusing on the way in which L’Wren died, however, I remain devoted to admiring the beauty of her work, as well as that of the supremely talented ladies of the Royal School of Needlework. Those women are divine!
