Fashion designer Kate Spade found dead, police say


This, as her husband opens up about the late designer. Fans of fashion know of Spade from her brand, Kate Spade New York, which she created with her husband, Andy Spade, back in 1993. "She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known".

The fashion designer was found dead at age 55 in a bedroom of her NYC apartment on Tuesday, June 5.

"I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media", he said. "We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce", he wrote.

As the media coverage of Kate Spade's apparent suicide is showing no signs of subsiding, one of the designer's brothers, Earl Brosnahan, issued a statement Thursday thanking the torrent of strength people have provided and took aim at erroneous leaks to the media.

She continued by email: "I will say this was not unexpected by me".

Kate sold her original company in 2007 and took some time off to raise her daughter, Frances Valentine but announced her return to fashion with a brand affectionately named after her little girl.

"Kate designed with great charm and humor, and built a global empire that reflected exactly who she was and how she lived".

Kate Spade New York has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores in America and more than 175 shops overseas, according to The Associated Press.

Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day.

"We were freaked out/saddened", Saffo said, "but she kept watching it and watching it over and over". They started a new venture in 2016, called Frances Valentine, selling handbags and footwear. She shares photos of family and friends and dining out out in tony restaurants, and taking wine tours.

Saying he and his daughter were "devastated" by the loss, he concluded: "My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much".

Asked how the rest of the family is doing during this time, Brosnahan says, "I think they're all right". While working at Mademoiselle, she noticed there was a need for stylish handbags, but it was her husband who convinced her to set out to fill the void. "This thing better work", she said in the interview.
