Saffo told the Star that her sister's suicide "was not unexpected by me", explaining how her sister long refused her family's entreaties to get help, fearing that a hospitalization might harm the image of the "happy-go-lucky" Kate Spade brand.

- The world reacted to news Tuesday of designer and ASU graduate Kate Spade's death. She joined the accessories department at Mademoiselle. There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious.

The Kansas City native who went on to establish a fashion empire with locations in nearly every country in the world was an inspiration, both as a business mogul and for her love of family. "I really think that people should give her kudos for that".

Chelsea Clinton, Lena Dunham and Jenna Bush Hager are a few who mourned the death of the late designer on Twitter.
