She launched her own fashion collection in 2006, called “Little Black Dress.” She gradually built up her collection, dressing starts like Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz for the Academy Awards and showing first in New York and then in London. Last February, Scott cancelled her show during London Fashion Week citing production problems and later showed it informally in Paris.
