Kate Spade Dead At 55

Police sources say she left a suicide note, asking her young daughter not to blame herself.

World-renowned designer Kate Spade was found dead at her Manhattan apartment after an apparent suicide by hanging on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, dealing the fashion world a devastating blow.

Kate Spade was seeing doctors and taking medicine for her disease, Andy Spade said in a statement released Wednesday.

"We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy".

Andy Spade said his main concern is protecting their 13-year-old daughter's privacy as she deals with "unimaginable grief".

"We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how", he insisted.

The 55-year-old businessman was seen walking slowly to a waiting SUV as he was surrounded by photographers. Arons, who worked with both Kate and Andy Spade during the period they were separating, said they continued to work well together. "We loved creating our businesses together", he wrote. "There were no business problems".

Deaths, injuries reported after volcano erupts in Guatemala
Lesser amounts of ash reached the capital of Guatemala City about 25 miles away, forcing the closure of its worldwide airport. Most of the victims reported initially were from the village of El Rodeo, according to Guatemala's El Periódico newspaper.

Andy Spade said he and his wife had made a decision to take a break and had lived in separate residences for 10 months.

Julia Curry, a spokeswoman for the original company, told the AP that "Kate will be dearly missed" and "our thoughts are with Andy and the entire Spade family at this time".

Crain's NY is taking a look back on Kate Spade's 40 Under 40 honor in 1997, when she was a fresh face in the handbag world.

The grieving husband of fashion designer Kate Spade left his Upper East Side building Thursday morning - hiding his face behind a mouse mask.

"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". In a statement, Andy Spade said that Kate had been battling personal demons and that the couple had been living separately for 10 months, but spending time frequently for their daughter, Frances Beatrix. There was no substance or alcohol abuse.

Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand past year for $2.4 billion.

Celebrities and fashion elite reacted to her death with shock and sympathy on Tuesday. "Everyone loves to get a letter", Spade told the Associated Press in 2006, explaining that she never used computers and had her staff print out emails.
