Fashion designer Kate Spade dead at 55 in N.Y.C. apartment

Fashion designer Kate Spade dead at 55 in N.Y.C. apartment

Fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her NY flat by her housekeeper on Tuesday, authorities said.

Her death also prompted an outpouring grief among fans.

"I said, 'Honey, you don't just start a handbag company, '" she told NPR, "and he said, 'Why not, how hard can it be?'" "It's still a fairly fresh incident", NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said.

Kate is survived by her husband Andy, who is the brother of David Spade, and her 13-year-old daughter Frances. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Her has said in a statement that they were "devastated" by her death and that they would "miss her terribly".

In today's terms, her early handbags were priced around the US$300 mark, making them affordable for young professional women who wanted more than the cheaper offerings but couldn't afford the more traditional, high end designers. One obvious measure of her influence was the number of counterfeit Kate Spade bags one could find on the streets, Arrington said.

"I chose to wear head-to-toe Kate Spade to an event tonight to honour her contributions to fashion and women in business, ' posted comedian Kathy Griffin to her Twitter page".

A crime scene truck was parked outside Spade's building on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and barriers had been set up to keep back reporters and gawkers who were arriving to the building.

Kate Spade's brand - Kate Spade New York owns more than 140 retail shops in United States of America and more than 175 stores across the world.

'Kate Spade, whose lively, colourful, and yes, joyous designs has died, ' tweeted Bette Midler.

Neva Hall, executive vice president at Neiman Marcus Stores, said the news was devastating.

Lucy Hale: "Very saddened to hear about the passing of Kate Spade". Opening her first store in NY in 1993, her designs were an instant hit for women of all ages.

Spade liked to say that she wasn't obsessed with fashion, or interested in trends. It created a smash. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's technically mine or hers, though I'm also not sure if that really matters. "For our customers, fashion is in the right place in their life". "It's an adornment, not an obsession".

Ms. Spade expanded her design offerings to sunglasses, shoes, luggage and clothing and even designed flight attendants outfits. Coach, Inc. acquired the company past year. Then, in 2006, she sold the remainder of the Kate Spade brand to them. The couple have a 13-year-old daughter name Frances Beatrix Spade.

Katherine Noel Brosnahan was born December 24, 1962, in Kansas City, Missouri.

'My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college, ' posted Chelsea Clinton. "She was a trailblazer".
