The world of fashion is really in shock, after the announcement of the death of designer Kate Spade at the age of 55. The TMZ daily revealed that she committed suicide by hanging in her New York apartment, and it was her cleaning lady who found her in her room this morning. The designer debuted in the fashion world in the 1980s, building a real empire that expanded to 140 stores in the United States alone and more than 175 other stores around the world, first detailing bags by hand, then extending its offer to clothing, home decor, stationery and more.
She is survived by her husband and business partner Andy Spade, the brother of actor David Spade, as well as her only daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade, 13 years old.
Celebrities from around the world have worn her creations. From Maisie Williams to Emma Roberts, as well as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, personalities from all walks of life and all budgets appreciated her colorful pieces and accessories. This is a huge loss for his close friends and associates as well as for fashion lovers around the world.
Our most sincere condolences to all those affected by this terrible news.
