Kate Spade: Notables mourn the late fashion designer

Kate Spade committed suicide after husband sought divorce

Kate Spade committed suicide after husband sought divorce

The designer's sister said she was obsessed with Robin Williams' 2014 suicide. "It was just really shocking to find out her best friend Kate Spade and also a big influence in my life just passed". Her husband Andy was home at the time.

TMZ added that one can infer from the portion of her suicide note that Kate Spade believed that her estranged husband knew why she killed herself. This is not your fault.

The sister of celebrated fashion designer Kate Spade says she may have taken her own life because of a struggle with mental illness.

Saffo and other members of the Spade family tried in vain to get Kate help, but she says that, ultimately, Kate's pain was too great. She could make me laugh so hard.

Saffo noted that she'd anxious that her sister had become "full-on manic depressive".

The Jane the Virgin star made a big statement with her Kate Spade Violet Drive Stripe Mega Maise Leather Satchel in 2015. Her brother-in-law, David Spade, tweeted a picture of her at his book signing and said: "I love this pic of her. She was so sharp and quick on her feet", he recalled. "It's her name on the door, no matter who you are working for".

She launched a new fashion brand in 2007, Frances Valentine after leaving Kate Spade New York.




Saffo, who is two years older than her famous sibling and lives in New Mexico, added that she'd flown to NY several times in the past three to four years in an attempt to convince Spade to seek in-patient hospitalisation and that Andy Spade had supported those efforts. The couple has a 13-year old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade.

While many remember Kate Spade for her fashion empire, the designer hoped it wouldn't be her only lasting legacy.

The New York-based designer was found dead in her apartment on Tuesday at age 55 in a reported suicide.

Meanwhile, Spade's niece, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel actress Rachel Brosnahan, took to Instagram to share a video of Spade joyfully dancing with her husband. She was at school when her mother was found on Tuesday morning.

One of her doormen told CBS2's Janelle Burrell "She was such a attractive person and so kind". "For example, I love a good shoe and a good bag, and I know that she was largely influenced by my grandmother, her mother, June".

The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, Depression Hurts and Kids Help Phone (1-800-668-6868) all offer ways for getting help if you or someone you know is suffering from mental health issues.
