  • Kate Spade Dead At 55

Kate Spade, left, hanged herself in her Park Avenue home on Tuesday morning.

The businesswoman was found dead in her apartment in NY, according to USA reports.

Celebrity news website TMZ cited police sources as saying Spade had fallen into depression in recent weeks after her husband left her and was seeking divorce.

Designer Kate Spade, one of the biggest names in American fashion known especially for her sleek handbags, was found dead on 5 June 2018 in her NY apartment. "She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease".

"We honor all the beauty she brought into this world", read a statement released by Kate Spade New York in the hours after her death became known. She called them her "stepping stones" - and said years later that they were still her favorites.

Saffo anxious that the brand's image was "more important" for Spade so she would not enter treatment for fear it would tarnish the "happy-go-lucky" vision.

"We ate many meals together as a family", he said. "There were no business problems".

"It was a complete shock", he added.

In 2006 Kate Spade sold the brand she and her husband launched in 1993 to Coach so she could focus on raising her daughter, Bea, now 13.

They got divorced ten months ago, and, of course, they were both dealing with their separation.

Kate Spade's older sister, Reta Saffo, told the Kansas City Star that Kate suffered from mental illness and had been self-medicating with alcohol. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break".

An unnamed source told Page Six that Kate had been a "major alcoholic", while additional anonymous sources also claimed that Kate appeared to have a drinking problem.

"We were freaked out/saddened", Saffo said, "but she kept watching it and watching it over and over".

"Kate Spade's tragic passing is a painful reminder that we never truly know another's pain or the burden they carry".

Liz Claiborne then bought the company shortly afterward for a reported $124 million, before it was acquired by Coach $2.4 billion a year ago. "That I could help her fill in any blanks she might have".

Kate Spade's devastated father is speaking out about the conversation he had with his daughter the night before she died.

He appealed for respect, saying, "Do you know the meaning of privacy?"
