A private memorial service for L'Wren Scott will take place today.

A host of fashion industry insiders will gather at St.Batholomew's Church in Manhattan tonight (02.05.14) to remember the late designer, who committed suicide in March, at a special service.

According to the New York Post newspaper, Andre Leon Talley will deliver a speech, while Ellen Barkin and O magazine's creative director Adam Glassman will be among those in attendance.

A spokesperson for Sir Mick Jagger - L'Wren's partner of 13 years - did not comment as to whether he will be present at the service.

The Rolling Stones frontman paid a touching tribute to the designer at her funeral service in March, which took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

The 70-year-old rocker told mourners including his children Karis, 43, Jade, 42, Elizabeth, 30, Georgia May, 22, James, 28, and Gabriel, 16, and L'Wren's brother Randall Bambrough stories of their relationship and spoke about his love for the designer at the ''intimate'' and sombre service, which was led by Revered Ed Bacon from the All Saints Church in Pasadena, California.

Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart later accompanied Bernard Fowler, a backup singer that has appeared on more than 30 albums with The Rolling Stones, as he performed the song 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken,' while Karis read a poem and Jade read Psalm 139.

L'Wren's brother Randall and her close friends also gave speeches during the heartbreaking ceremony.

Mick's grandchildren Mazie and Zak also read Psalms, and L'Wren's niece Hannah Bambrough read Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?' during the service.
