The Schläppi 2200 Collection is often used for haute couture exhibitions, having previously been used by Christie's for their Audrey Hepburn sale in 2017. The collection was considered by Hubert de Givenchy as a favourite for displaying his couture. More recently, the collection was used by Judith Clark for 'Dialogue: 130 Years of Lanvin' in Shanghai in 2020.

Scott dressed actors including Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, Penélope Cruz, Amy Adams, Ellen Barkin and Renèe Zellweger, her work often featuring embellished garments based on natural, floral motifs.

She designed a number of stage jackets for Mick Jagger, worn during his Rolling Stones world tours. Net-A-Porter described Scott's designs as "seductive, old-world feel: super-feminine silhouettes; rigorous cuts; nipped-in waists; pencil skirts, high-collared blouses; elegant, long-sleeved dresses."

The L'Wren Scott Collection auction is now on and closes in 8 days. For more information on the sale, visit Christie's, King Street, London.
