Celebrities Celebrate The Woman Behind The Kate Spade Brand

"I thought it was important to distinguish who I am now", she said.

He said she "sounded happy" the night before and her death was a complete shock.

It's alleged that the 55-year-old designer hanged herself. Liz Claiborne acquired the company in 2007, and Kate Spade left her namesake brand.

"She was a great talent who had an immeasurable impact on American fashion and the way the world viewed American accessories", read a statement issued by CFDA charwoman Diane von Furstenberg and CFDA president Steven Kolb on Tuesday. Her company, Kate Spade New York, has over 140 retail shops and outlets around the USA, as well as at 175 worldwide locations.

Kate Spade left an indelible mark on the fashion industry and my tweet was meant to pay tribute to her inspiring life and work.

In addition to the more affordable prices, Spade's designs offered delightful, often quirky, whimsical touches.

Spade's was a lifestyle brand before everything was a lifestyle brand, and unlike the seltzer companies and razor subscription services that claim the title for themselves today, hers spoke to how customers wanted to live while meeting them where they were - there was patterned china (for entertaining, maybe, but more likely Chinese takeout), striped bedding that made you question the existence of plain white sheets, and cheeky notecards that have withstood the test of the email era. And she changed her name to Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Brosnahan Spade.

The body was found not long after 10 a.m., police said.

But Kate and Andy Spade never stopped working in fashion. "My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college", Chelsea Clinton wrote on Twitter.

Spade was not only about bags: she would expand into shoes, apparel, luggage and other accessories, and stationery. I'm not going to get into the contents of that note. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends, and her many fans around the world, who loved the wonderful illusions she created. She left Mademoiselle in 1991, and began "kate spade handbags" in January of 1993 with her husband, Andy Spade. She appeared on an episode of "Just Shoot Me", a sitcom starring her brother-in-law, and branched out into writing books and general lifestyle advice. "You never saw them out being contentious or not being there for one another".

Mallis, the former CFDA director, noted that the stunning news of Spade's death came just the morning after virtually the entire NY fashion industry had gathered at the Brooklyn Museum for the glitzy annual CFDA awards.
