Kate Spade Has Apparently Committed Suicide in Her NYC Apartment

Kate Spade Has Apparently Committed Suicide in Her NYC Apartment

It seems success does not make you happy. Fashion icon Kate Spade, 55  has been found dead of an apparent suicide in her Park Avenue home. A staff member found Spade hanged from a red scarf on a bedroom door Tuesday morning.

The NYPD didn’t immediately confirm Spade’s identity, but stated a 55-year-old woman was found unconscious and unresponsive shortly before 10:30 a.m. on the Upper East Side.

According to the Associated Press, Spade’s 13-year-old daughter Frances Beatrix, was at school. A note was found at the scene telling her it was not her fault. Spade’s husband of 24 years, Andy was in the house, at the time.

In the 90s, Spade, was an accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine. She launched her company Kate Spade New York with her husband in their apartment, based on six shapes of bags that she thought every working woman needed and she was right. She now has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores and more than 175 stores internationally.  Spade walked away from the company in 2007, a year after it was acquired from the Neiman Marcus Group for $125 million by the company then known as Liz Claiborne Inc.

Coach, now operating under the name Tapestry, paid billions for Kate Spade & Co. in May 2017.
