  • Designer Kate Spade reportedly found dead from apparent suicide

Kate Spade, a fashion designer known for her sleek handbags, was found dead in her Park Avenue apartment on Tuesday.

According to the Associated Press, Spade's housekeeping staff found her dead in her NY apartment along with a note.

A police official said that Spade was found in her bedroom and was "unconscious and unresponsive". A note was reportedly found at the scene, but officials did not reveal any further details.

Spade, 55, rose to prominence in fashion starting with her line of handbags in the 1990s, starting a company along with husband Andy Spade.

In 1999, Spade ceded a majority stake in her company to high-end department store chain Neiman Marcus for $34 million. Coach, the American maker of high-end luxury goods, announced on Monday that it would buy rival Kate Spade in a $2.4 billion deal.

Her New York-based company, which she co-founded with her husband in 1994, initially sold handbags, but the designer brand eventually extended to clothing, jewelry, shoes, stationary, eyewear, and bedding, among other items. She sold the last of her shares in that concern in 2016 and launched a new fashion brand called Frances Valentine. She is survived by her daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade, and husband Andy Spade.

He went on: "Kate Spade was decent, she was fair and above all she insisted everyone around her be kind!"

She also joked about the challenges of working with friends and family.
