Yesterday we learned of the tragedy that struck amongst the sleek handbag designer we know as Kate Spade. At 55, Kate was found at her NYC apartment. She is survived by a beautiful daughter Frances and husband, Andy Spade.

Beginning something that grew beyond herself, Spade started her handbag company in 1993 with her husband. Quickly becoming the bag that every it girl from the office to the social scene needed, she sold her company in 2017 to Coach Inc., now Tapestry Inc. for 2.4 billion dollars.

If you or anyone that you know of daily are exhibiting any signs of suicide or depression, please do not hesitate to call

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255)
