Last night we were hit with the shocking news of ace accessory designer, Kate Spade‘s death. A report according to People states that
Police say she was found hanging from a red scarf Tuesday morning in her bedroom at her Park Avenue home in Manhattan. The scarf had reportedly been tied to her door. A housekeeper discovered her, according to a police source, and she apparently left a suicide note, though its contents are not known at this time.
Wikipedia defines Kate Spade as, “An American fashion designer and businesswoman. The namesake and former co-owner of the designer brand Kate Spade New York” But we know her as the designer who brought the funk into fashion. Her bags, accessories, and clothes have been making a statement ever since the brand’s inception in 1993. No matter the design, the brand always encapsulated a vibe that was like no other. From the brand’s cutesy Pineapple bags to her collaboration with Keds to create a line of comfy kicks for brides—You can safely say that there was no one like her!
