Fashion designer Kate Spade found dead in apartment

Ivanka is also a fashion designer, with her namesake brand creating bags, clothing and accessorises for women.

Spade, who married Kate Spade in 1994, also said in the statement that the couple had been living separately for the last 10 months. "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly". This is not your fault.

While media outlets have reported that Kate Spade left a suicide note addressed to her 13-year-old daughter, Spade said he has yet to see such a note and is "appalled" that it has been shared with the media. She added, "Sometimes you simply can not SAVE people from themselves!"

"If you're as honest and fair as you can be, not only in business but in life, things will work out", she told the magazine in a recently resurfaced interview. "Please!' I know she perhaps had a plan, but she insisted she did not", Saffo added. She was always a very excitable little girl and I felt all the stress/pressure of her brand (KS) may have flipped the switch where she eventually became full-on manic depressive ...

The housekeeper's personal Facebook page includes photos depicting a sprawling Napa Valley manse that she identifies as belonging to Spade.

Members of the late designer Kate Spade's family are said to be disgusted by her sister's remarks that her suicide was not unexpected.

Outside a Kate Spade store on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue Tuesday, Dorothy Ruderman, who said she was a fan of the designer, compared Spade's death to that of Robin Williams, who hanged himself in 2014.

One of those leaving a tribute was Ivanka Trump, who posted a touching tribute to Kate on her Instagram page.

Kate and Andy, the brother of comedian David Spade, started the Kate Spade line of handbags in 1993 before marrying a year later.

Kate was found dead in her NY apartment on Tuesday in an apparent suicide. "She was definitely anxious about what people would say if they found out". In fact, Spade made no money for the first three years of her company.

"She was a dear little person".

She and her husband Andy built a fashion empire around her signature handbags, counting celebrities like actress Ellie Kemper among her clientele. "She was all set to go - but then chickened out by morning", she recalled.

The company she founded and later sold, Kate Spade New York, now has over 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the USA and more than 175 shops internationally.
