Kate Spade's father says he spoke with his late daughter the night before she was found dead in her New York City apartment in what authorities believe was a suicide.

Andy Spade was spotted picking up his and Kate Spade's daughter Frances Beatrix from school on June 5 to reportedly deliver the devastating news about her mother's death.

Andy Spade called his wife the kindest person he knew and said he can not fathom life without her.

He said her death was a "complete shock". 'We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how.

The firestorm of publicity prompted Andy Spade to issue a statement Wednesday to The New York Times to try to set the record straight. We loved creating our businesses together.

Andy, 55, said he and Kate had lived separately for almost a year, but denied that either of them was seeking a divorce.

Kate Spade was known for her colourful designs.

If someone you know exhibits warning signs of suicide, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention advises that you do not leave the person alone, call a prevention hotline, and take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.

The designer's death has turned into a media feeding frenzy, with some outlets citing unnamed sources alleging the contents of a note found at the scene Tuesday.

Kate Spade's older sister, Reta Saffo, said she and others suspected her sibling was suffering from bipolar disorder, an illness which she would self-medicate with alcohol.

He said he and Kate had been living separately for the past 10 months and that their daughter was their first priority. Arons, who worked with both Kate and Andy Spade during the period they were separating, said they continued to work well together. "I would never do that, ' and I believed her".

The grieving husband of fashion designer Kate Spade left his Upper East Side building Thursday morning - hiding his face behind a mouse mask. They returned to the fashion world in 2016 by founding Frances Valentine, which was partly named after Frances Beatrice. "It was a time in the marriage when it was right for them to be apart", she said.
