Taking to Twitter to pay another tribute to Kate, former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton also shared her condolences to the Spade family.

"Kate Spade was more than a designer".

One of Spade's sisters, Reta Saffo, told the New York Daily News that the suicide didn't come as a surprise. "My daughter and I jumped up and down when she won", Spade gushed to Page Six about Brosnahan's big win at the time.

Speaking publicly for the first time since her death, Andy said that his wife had suffered from depression and anxiety and was being treated by a doctor for the past five years. According to the celebrity news site, Kate's husband, Andy Spade, had wanted a divorce, but Kate did not. "She had a quirky visual language that captivated Bat Mitzvah girls and artists alike", wrote actress Lena Dunham on Twitter. "Her statements paint a picture of someone who didn't know her at all".

When the comedian Robin Williams also ended his life by suicide in 2014, the act seemed to become a touchstone for Spade.

She described nostalgically how Andy, who funded her eponymous handbag line after launching it in 1993 by putting all of his salary from an advertising job behind it, proposed to her in the Hamptons.

Fashion company Coach bought the Kate Spade brand previous year for US$2.4 billion (RM9.55 billion), but Spade herself didn't benefit from the sale as she had already sold her shares in the company more than a decade before. Ms. Spade was known for her bold, colorful and classy aesthetic.

Kate was married to Andy Spade, the brother of David.

She added that sometimes you can't save people from themselves, and the stress and pressure of her empire led to Spade becoming manic-depressive (Doctors used to use the term to describe bipolar disorder).

Posting an old photo of them together on Instagram, David said he "still can't believe" that his sister-in-law has passed away.

"This was someone that really valued her private life and I don't think Kate could live in the cruel world that we live in today".

"She was all set to go, but then chickened out by morning". Recently, Spade moved on to launch a new luxury brand, Frances Valentine.

Kate Spade left behind a note telling her daughter it wasn't her fault and to seek answers from her father, The Baltimore Sun reported, citing sources.

The world is certainly a more colorful and attractive place because of her.
