RIP Kate Spade
Quote:
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Designer Kate Spade was found dead in her Manhattan apartment following an apparent suicide, sources tell CBS2.

Spade, 55, was found by her housekeeper at her home at 850 Park Avenue.

She left a note, sources said.

Just last year, Coach bought Kate Spade’s company in a whopping $2.4 billion deal.

Oh how awful! I always thought her things were adorable. You never know what a person is going through mentally and emotionally.

I just feel bad for her daughter.. to be 13 and have your mother die of suicide is a good way to have everything life promised to be turn upside down and maybe never go back to what it could've been..

Omg, such terrible news! Kate went out of her way to maintain a loe profile, and while not the most trending brand, she still had tremendous respect.

RIP.

There are no words, and reminds me of L.Scott, another amazing person lost to depression.


May they both rest in peace.

Kate's made a definite mark in the fashion industry. Her bright and fresh designs are still big among the youth becoming adults. Wishing her and her loved ones peace and tranquility. RIP.

I didn't know she was David Spade's sister in law! This is sad news, but it highlights that mental illness isn't always as obvious as we think it is.

The response on various sites about this news is utterly macabre. Some blame the husband (because of the note), her daughter (apparently they were emotionally estranged), money problems, the continued success of the Kate Spade brand (which I didn't even knew she sold), but it all really boils down to mental illness which in 2018 the public at large still don't grasp!

I agree, her suffering must have been unbearable to do this to her child.
