  • Designer Kate Spade reportedly found dead from apparent suicide

A note was found on a bed near Spade's body that was addressed to her 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade, TMZ reported. The officials were not authorised to give details of an investigation and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, the Guardian reports.

Police confirmed that she also left a note behind, but officials did not comment on what it said.

Spade, who was 55, found fame for her handbag and purse designs popular throughout the 1990s and 2000s, and her company, Kate Spade New York, has hundreds of retail stores worldwide.

"The CFDA is devastated to hear the news of our friend, colleague, and CFDA member Kate Spade's tragic passing", Diane von Furstenberg and Steven Kolb.

Our thoughts remain with her friends and family during this hard time.

American singer-songwriter Josh Groban wrote that "depression does not discriminate and comes without warning" and sent "love to her family" while posting the phone number for the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan in Kansas City in 1962. But in 2016, she launched a fresh fashion brand, Francis Valentine.

Fellow designers and industry executives reacted to the news of Spade's death.

"I was looking for something that could be less serious, more personal", she said of her inspiration in a 1999 interview with the Boston Globe. "She was also a staple of NYC who spread goodwill". Kate Spade Handbags was launched in 1993, with its first store located in Manhattan's SoHo neighbourhood.

"Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos", David captioned the photo.
