Earlier this morning, fashion-loving celebs, designers and editors were rocked by the news of quirky fashion designer, Kate Spade’s passing.
The 55 year-old was found to have hung herself in the bedroom of her New York City apartment and was found by her housekeeper. Her husband, Andy Spade — who is the brother of actor and comedian — David Spade was home at the time of Kate’s suicide.
Police have said that they had found a note that Kate addressed to her daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade.
In her note, Kate wrote, “Bea — I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!”
Upon hearing the news of her death, many celebrities and fashion designers took to Twitter to express their sadness. Former US first daughter, Chelsea Clinton, shared how she was gifted a Kate Spade bag by her grandmother in university.
Fans of the brand were also sharing photographs of their Kate Spade purchases and shared just how much the brand meant to them.
To honour Kate’s work and to remember her whimsical designs, we’ve put together a gallery of Kate’s celebrity fans wearing her designs:
