  • Kate Spade at the 2011 VH1 Vogue Fashion Show Birthday — Cropped

Iconic fashion designer Kate Spade, who has a popular clothes and accessories brand named after her, was found dead Tuesday at her home in New York's Upper East Side, local police said.

As reported by the Associated Press, Spade was found dead in her Manhattan apartment Tuesday morning. Kate Spade New York has 140 retail shops and outlet stores nationwide and more than 175 worldwide stores.

Indeed, Spade had said it herself: "I hope that people remember me not just as a good businesswoman", she told Glamour magazine in 2002, "but as a great friend - and a heck of a lot of fun". Her husband and business partner Andy Spade was in the apartment at the time.

The designer started her handbag company in 1994 with husband Andy Spade (brother of actor David Spade), and created a brand that extended to clothing, jewellery, shoes, stationery, eyewear and bedding, among other items. In 1999, they sold 56 percent of Kate Spade New York's shares to Neiman Marcus for US$33.6 million (S$44.8 million). She changed her name to Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Brosnahan Spade, she said in an NPR interview this year. "She launched her label at a time when everyone thought that the definition of a handbag was strictly European, all decades-old serious status and wealth".

"She kind of puts the power in girl power, in a way", Hauser said.

Kate Spade's brand was famous worldwide for its fashion designs, in particular handbags and purses.


There are more than 300 Kate Spade stores globally. Prior to launching her fashion line, Spade spent five years at "Mademoiselle", a women's magazine, and eventually become a senior fashion editor and head of accessories. In 1993, they launched Kate Spade Handbags, which went on to be a huge success.

"My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college".

She said at the time: "I needed a break and I really wanted to raise my daughter [Frances]". "She was also a staple of NYC who spread goodwill".

"Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos", David captioned the photo.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). "You made the world a more lovely place", tweeted one fan.
