Brad Goreski Pays Tribute to Kate Spade After Her Death

"Fuzzy picture but I love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos".

For many women, a Kate Spade handbag functioned as a symbol of professional achievement.

The sister of celebrated fashion designer Kate Spade said she may have taken her own life because of a struggle with mental illness.

In the same statement to the Daily News, Saffo said Spade was ready to get help, but was also anxious about the image of her brand if she did.

Kanye West is certainly at a cross-section in his career where finding a balance between relative calm and his frenetic creative spurts.

"She was always just as happy and delightful as her collection was", said Fern Mallis, industry consultant and former director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America during Spade's rise to success in the 1990s.

Kate and Andy Spade sold majority stake in their company to Neiman Marcus in 1999, and the remaining shares in 2006 for a combined $93 million.

The housekeeper who discovered Kate Spade's suicide considered the fashion icon her "best friend" and even went on vacations with her to Napa Valley, the housekeeper's son told The Post.

Tapestry Inc, the handbag company formerly known as Coach, eventually bought the Kate Spade brand in May 2017 to tap millennials, who are drawn to the company's quirky satchels and colourful tote bags.

Once Germany fell behind they had few chances to equalise, and Austria looked the more unsafe side on the break. First-half goals from Gary Cahill and captain Harry Kane helped England beat Nigeria 2-1.

Spade also referenced media reports of a suicide note that had been reportedly left by his late wife.

"That seemed to make her more comfortable, and we'd get sooo close to packing her bags, but - in the end, the "image" of her brand (happy-go-lucky Kate Spade) was more important for her to keep up".

The source went on to say that the 55-year-old designer was a "kind, generous, funny, warm, and extremely private person".

The designer, 55, started Kate Spade New York in 1993 and opened her first shop in the city three years later, the company's website states.

Kate Spade's body was removed from her Park Avenue apartment Tuesday after she was found hanged in the bedroom in an apparent suicide, according to law enforcement officials.

Kate and Andy Spade had one daughter together. Saffo contacted The Star to say that the story had misspelled Spade's childhood nickname, Katy. She was lovely and elegant and charming. And she changed her name to Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Brosnahan Spade.

We can all aspire to her commitment to her vision and her family. "I don't think it ever technically fell apart, but I think they were living apart".

One of her doormen told CBS2's Janelle Burrell "She was such a attractive person and so kind". "Long before we talked about 'authenticity, ' she defined it".
