Fashion designer Kate Spade has died in an apparent suicide, according to law enforcement officials.
As reported by the Associated Press, Spade was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Tuesday morning. She was 55 According to officials, a housekeeper found Spade hanging in her bedroom in her Park Avenue apartment.
A note was reportedly found at the scene, but officials did not reveal any further details.
Born Kate Brosnahan, Spade is widely known for her eponymous brand, which she founded with her husband, Andy Spade, in the 1990s. The couple, who married in 1994, have a 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade.
Kate started her career as an accessories editor at Condé Nast before noticing a gap in the market for clean, simple, modern handbags, she said in a January interview with NPR. After three years of not turning a profit, the brand received an award in 1996 from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and its colorful creations were suddenly must-have items.
The company was acquired by Neiman Marcus for $125 million in 2007 and Kate and Andy stepped away from day-to-day operations. Then, it was sold again in 2017 to Coach’s Tapestry Inc. for $2.4 billion.
Kate launched another fashion brand, Frances Valentine, in 2015 which specializes in handbags and shoes. The design world will miss this lovely lady as well as a great designer. Rest In Peace Kate.
