How the Fashion Industry Is Reacting to Kate Spade’s Death

The fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her NY apartment on Tuesday in what authorities reportedly believe was a suicide.

Actress Lena Dunham said: "Kate Spade was more than a designer". A source in the police department told the news site that Spade had hanged herself.

David Spade paid tribute to his late sister-in-law Kate, who was found dead by an apparent suicide on Tuesday.

Spade was a former accessories editor at the now-closed Mademoiselle magazine before launching her design company, Kate Spade New York, in 1993. As the name implies, they initially sold mainly handbags, but eventually extended to clothing, jewelry, shoes, stationery, eyewear, baby items, fragrances, tabletop, bedding and gifts. Neiman Marcus sold the Kate Spade label in 2006 for $124 million to Liz Claiborne Inc., which was later renamed to Fifth & Pacific.

Spade's most recent move was setting up a new luxury brand called Frances Valentine, but it will undoubtedly be the eponymous fashion house that she will be best remembered for.

The brand, initially sold in several NY stores, opened its flagship in the city's Soho neighborhood in 1996. So pretty. I dont think everyone knew how f- amusing she was.

"She was also a staple of NYC who spread good will", she said.

The couple's 13-year-old daughter was at school.
