Kate Spade Dead At 55

Iconic fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead at the age of 55 in her NY apartment on 5 June. "The last I talked with her, the night before last, she was happy planning a trip to California to look at colleges".

This same source also said that Andy was "shook up" after his partner's death, and anxious about the impact her passing might have on their daughter.

Reta says she'd tried to get Kate to enter a facility for treatment: "I'd flown out to Napa and NYC several times in the past 3-4 years to help her to get the treatment she needed (inpatient hospitalization)".

"It was a complete shock", he added. "We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how".

They moved to NY in the mid-1980s before Kate launched Kate Spade Handbags in 1993. We were together for 35 years.

In his statement, Andy Spade says the pair had been living separately for 10 months but were not legally separated, nor had they been discussing divorce, as was claimed in some media reports. She loves spending her time outdoors as much as possible.

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. "The contents of that note, as well as the physical state of the apartment and the comments of the witness, lend to the credibility that it is an apparent suicide", said Dermot Shea, chief of detectives for the New York City Police Department. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.

"Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years", Andy Spade said.

Roldan revealed that Kate was his mentor, and even recently shared a video to social media of himself celebrating Mother's Day with the designer.

Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri.

Andy said that the two lived near each other, spoke or saw each other daily, and continued to take vacations together.

It was officially confirmed by the Medical Examiner's Office to the New York Times on Thursday morning. There was no substance or alcohol abuse. "Kate loved Bea so very much". Over a decade ago, she sold the business and later launched a luxury line Frances Valentine.
