David Spade on losing sister-in-law Kate Spade

06 June, 2018, 19:14 | Author: Pamela Mathis

Grieving deeply, Kate Spade's older sister told The Kansas City Star on Tuesday that her famous designer sister suffered debilitating mental illness for the last three or four years and was self-medicating with alcohol.

While many remember Kate Spade for her fashion empire, the designer hoped it wouldn't be her only lasting legacy.

The Bad Blood singer has been seen wearing the brand numerous times over the years.

Best known for its colorful handbags, Kate Spade New York has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the United States and more than 175 stores internationally, the site states.

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing this pink rose printed dress by the popular brand in October of 2016.

Kate left behind a 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix.

"My grandmother gave me my first Kate Spade bag when I was in college", wrote Chelsea Clinton on social media.

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and artistic director of Conde Nast, said Spade "had an enviable gift for understanding exactly what women the world over wanted to carry".




Have something to add to the story? "I often say, 'We may not heel the world, but we hope to be an accessory.' Kate Spade left an indelible mark on the fashion industry and my tweet was meant to pay tribute to her inspiring life and work", he said.

Spade's family confirmed her death in a statement to The New York Times.

Spade then took time off from leading her namesake brand to raise her daughter. The brand grew quickly and expanded to include shoes, luggage and other accessories, as well as a home line, stationery, and books. And I said, honey, you just don't start a handbag company.

Kate's actor brother-in-law David, 53, also spoke out following her death, tweeting a picture of the businesswoman to his 2.84 million Twitter followers.

"Saffo said she never expected Spade to kill herself, but noted her sister's fascination with Robin Williams" suicide by hanging in 2014.

"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. I'd come so VERY close to getting her to go in for treatment (to the same place Catherine Zeta-Jones went for her successful bipolar treatment program).
