Katherine Noel Brosnahan, commonly known as Kate Spade will be remembered for her iconic performance after an apparent suicide. Spade, a handbag and fashion designer was declared dead in New York, United States. While the police said that her death at 55 was an evident suicide.
Spade was a former fashion designer and editor of fashion magazine Mademoiselle that developed a fashion vibe in the 1990’s. Twitter was flooded with doleful comments post her death. However, the late designer had a few well-known faces in her family.
“One of aunt Katie’s influences was my fabulous grandmother, June, who always had a closet full of amazing shoes and scarves and handbags,” – said Brosnahan to the Los Angeles Times.
“Kate Spade had an enviable gift for understanding exactly what women the world over wanted to carry,” – said the editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour.
Later Brosnahan told the Women Wear Daily that she extols “from afar,” unlike her aunt. “People around me have said that I’ve inherited little pieces of Katie’s style,” she told the journal in November 2017. “For example, I love a good shoe and a good bag.”
Kate was a proud aunt despite the couture wasn’t the favorite leisure for everyone. The Golden Award won by Brosnahan in January for playing the title role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, made Kate feel proud.
On Tuesday the U.S. Weekly entrenched that Kate died from an apparent suicide. She hung herself, using a red scarf in her apartment at New York City. Her housekeeper found her dead at 10:20 am on Tuesday.
