  • Designer Kate Spade reportedly found dead from apparent suicide

Spade, who was born in Kansas City, Missouri, launched her company with husband Andy in their NY apartment in 1993. Police are investigating it as an apparent suicide.

For a 26-year-old California girl, NY came as a culture shock.

She was working as an accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine when she launched her company with husband Andy in their NY apartment in 1993. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how f--ing amusing she was.

Kate and her husband Andrew first launched their line of designer handbags back in 1993 - they would eventually branch out into clothes. They were colourful, bold, cheerful, and encouraged women to find the twinkly person inside them.

The couple got married in Jamaica in 2011 in front of 102 guests - the same year Kate Middleton became Prince William's wife. Though it will mark their first joint engagement, the royal duo have attended a handful of events together in recent months.

The brand, initially sold in several NY stores, opened its flagship in the city's Soho neighborhood in 1996.

After graduation, the couple moved to New York City. "We wore a lot of her designs on Riverdale and her artistic vision will be greatly missed".

Spade's bags have a famous following, including daughters of presidents and celebrities. While working for Mademoiselle, she had noticed that the market lacked stylish and sensible handbags, and she made a decision to create her own. The "Sam" was relaunched this year by the label in new prints and colors. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:26 a.m., The Times said. They sold the business to Neiman Marcus Group in 1999; NMG then sold the brand to Liz Claiborne Inc.in 2006.

Kate sold her company in 2007 to focus on raising her daughter Frances Spade who had been born two years earlier. Coach acquired it in 2017 for $2.4 billion.

Only a loss to Dominika Cibulkova in the 2009 quarterfinals here, in which she won only two games, was worse. She clearly still has business to attend to as she eyes a follow-up to her 2016 title on the Parisian clay.

However in 2016 Kate returned with her brand new brand, Frances Valentine. Jenna Bush Hager wrote: "I will never forget the first Kate Spade bag I got for Christmas in college". I still have it.

Not long after police confirmed the news on Tuesday night that she had died by suicide, countless celebs took to Twitter to pay tribute to the woman whose handbags have graced red carpets since the 90s.

Lena Dunham tweeted about Spade's "quirky visual language". Kate also changed her name to Kate Valentine. "My heart goes out to her family and to all she has touched". "You made the world a more lovely place", tweeted one fan.

Spade was not only about bags: she would expand into shoes, apparel, luggage and other accessories, and stationery.
