Prior to launching her fashion line, Spade spent five years at "Mademoiselle", a women's magazine, and eventually become a senior fashion editor and head of accessories.

He said her death was a "complete shock". And it clearly wasn't her.

"The family is disgusted and saddened that at this time of great sorrow, Kate's sister who has been estranged from the entire family for more than 10 years would choose to surface with unsubstantiated comments", the source said.

Her daughter is only thirteen years old and just lost her mother. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. "This thing better work", she said in the interview. We were together for 35 years. "We loved each other very much and simply needed a break", Andy Spade added.

After her death on Tuesday, reports pegged to unnamed police officials circulated that said she had left a suicide note for her daughter.

Kate Spade died of an apparent suicide earlier this week, and since the news broke, people everywhere have shared their love for Kate Spade and her designs on social media.

It had been reported that Kate Spade, iconic fashion designer known for her sleek handbags, was found dead in her Park Avenue apartment on 5 June of an apparent suicide. She was 55 years old and had a 13-year-old daughter. Dr. Lieberman did not treat Spade personally.

Herzog, who covers Tapestry, the company that acquired the Kate Spade fashion house, credited the designer with being a role model for a younger generation.

Brosnahan told the Star that Spade would be "delighted" if she knew her death inspired a national discussion that might help people struggling with mental illness. "As others came through the ranks they looked to her to see how she was able to navigate the world of retail", Herzog said. However, he declined to characterize her state as either manic depression or a lifelong condition.

"She didn't say why she did it", a police source said of Kate's final message.

Kate Spade had no alcohol, business or substance abuse problems, he said.

"I think they're all right". "They both agreed to it. They were very close".

"She kept watching it and watching it over and over. We would talk a lot about it and end up laughing", she said. She was dying for me to say something, and I didn't. I would never do that.
