Kate Spade's niece Rachel Brosnahan breaks silence on designer's death


Ivanka is also a fashion designer, with her namesake brand creating bags, clothing and accessorises for women. Along with her husband, Spade grew a small line founded in 1993 to an global behemoth bearing her name.

According to Radar Online, some reports claim that Andy, Kate's husband of 24 years, recently asked for a divorce and had moved out of the Manhattan home they shared. After she sold the company, she made so much money, Kate could retreat. This is not your fault.

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

"If you put a pulse into it and every fiber of your being, people are going to respond". TMZ reported that the note said: "Bea - I have always loved you". I don't know. I think something a little more interesting. Spade seemed concerned how hospitalization might harm the image of the "happy-go-lucky" Kate Spade brand, she said.

The Instagram picture shows Kate and David standing together, and the caption reads: "Fuzzy picture but I love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos". Saffo said her sister was visiting her in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when news broke in August 2014 that the actor and comedian had died by hanging himself in his Tiburon home. Precious in every aspect, just dear- but she was surrounded by YES people, for far too long, therefore she did not receive the proper care for what I believed to be (and tried numerous times to get her help for) Bipolar disorder... stemming from her enormous celebrity.

Police responded at 10:10 a.m. after Spade was found by her housekeeper, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said.

Spade was born Katherine Noel Brosnahan in Kansas City, Mo., and became a fashion force and cultural touchstone for her instantly recognisable handbags featuring modern, sleek designs with bold pops of colour and feminine flourishes.

Spade and her husband founded her line of handbags in 1993. She was at school when her mother was found on Tuesday morning.

In a People article published on Wednesday, Guest - actress and longtime family friend - told the publication that she never witnessed any such discord between the two.

But Spade, whose brands - first Kate Spade and later Frances Valentine - were associated with freewheeling modern living, felt that seeking help would hurt her products. I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea).
