President and CEO of Jaipur Asha Chaudhary shares, "The entire Jaipur Living family is saddened to hear of the passing of iconic designer Kate Spade".

That's one of the reasons the death of the brand's founder is being so widely mourned, as celebrities and fashion fans take to Twitter to post tributes.

"I said, 'Honey, you don't just start a handbag company, '" she told NPR, "and he said, 'Why not, how hard can it be?'"

In one of her last interviews back in 2016 with The Cut - part of the New York Magazine - Kate opened up about running her own business.

The death of Kate Spade on June 5 shocked the fashion industry after she was found by her housekeeper at her NY home, having hanged herself with a scarf she reportedly tied to a doorknob. She was an accessories editor at the magazine when she left in the early 1990s. "It's an adornment, not an obsession".

"If there is an American accessories icon, it was Kate Spade", Melissa Hoyer wrote on hers. "It was a real shift", Mallis said.

He also deleted his original tweet and explained it by telling Page Six, "I often say, 'We may not heel the world, but we hope to be an accessory.' After posting the tweet, I realized there may have been room for misinterpretation". "They were affordable AND terrific AND fabulous".

Heartbreaking news from the fashion world today. "You associated yourself with this fun, cool, with-it, hip brand that wasn't snobbish or so exclusive that it felt like a European luxury brand". "She had a quirky visual language that captivated Bat Mitzvah girls and artists alike", Dunham wrote. Kate also changed her name to Kate Valentine.




Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. "She was a visionary".

The NYPD confirmed that she was found unconscious and unresponsive due to an apparent suicide. "I still have mine". "I still have it".

There are more than 300 Kate Spade stores globally.

Several admirers like Ivanka Trump highlighted the importance of suicide helplines and seeing the signs of depression.

Behrs spoke about what Spade had meant to her personally, remembering the first Kate Spade bag she had gotten in high school. "I love sending them". For still others, they were a first splurge after getting a raise, or rewards for a job well done.

The Kate Spade brand was acquired by Coach past year amid sluggish sales at department stores.

Wilson, of InStyle, recalled often finding her in her store, helping shoppers. Her life and death are a reminder that pain doesn't discriminate. The couple started Kate Spade New York in 1993. "It's sad that she's gone", O'Brien said.

Spade was a co-founder of the designer label Kate Spade New York, which she later sold. You could not walk into her boutiques and not smile.
