Designer Kate Spade, one of the biggest names in American fashion known especially for her sleek handbags, was found dead on 5 June 2018 in her NY apartment.

The NYPD confirmed to ET on Tuesday that Spade, 55, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment of an apparent suicide, and her body was discovered by an individual that was employed by her.

"There was no indication and no warning that she would do this", he said.

Kate's husband and creative partner Andy Spade released a statement to the New York Times on Wednesday, acknowledging that the couple had hit a rough patch in their marriage and had been living in separate apartments, but insisting they had no plans to divorce. I even said I (would) go with her and be a "patient" too (she liked that idea) I said we could talk about it all - our childhood, etc. Andy Spade, her husband, addresses those matters and more in his statement.

The son of Kate's housekeeper (who remains unnamed), Mark Roldan, 23, said his mother was completely devastated over the death of the woman she considered to be her "best friend".

Andy explained how the esteemed accessory designer had been "actively seeking" help for her mental health issues in the past five years and had been taking medication for both depression and anxiety. She was 55 years old. In her suicide note, Spade reportedly told her daughter it was "not your fault" and to "ask daddy".

"We are grateful for the incredible outpouring of love and support the family has received over the last few days", the statement reads.
