The company, Kate Spade New York, has over 140 retail shops and outlet stores across the us and more than 175 shops internationally.

And the bags seemed to effortlessly appeal to a variety of women. Kate also changed her name to Kate Valentine.

Media is gathered outside the apartment of fashion designer Kate Spade after she was found dead at age 55 on June 5, 2018 in NY.

Spade was born Katherine Noel Brosnahan in Kansas City, Mo., and became a fashion force and cultural touchstone for her instantly recognisable handbags featuring modern, sleek designs with bold pops of colour and feminine flourishes.

In a February 2017 interview with NPR's How I Built This podcast, the designer admitted that she had always been a nervous person and that she had often anxious about her company, Kate Spade New York, going under in the early years. "It was a time in the marriage when it was right for them to be apart", she said. Kate designed with great charm and humor, and built a global empire that reflected exactly who she was and how she lived.

Some of those paying tribute to Spade recalled their first experience with the brand, once perceived to be a status-symbol.

Spade also took to Twitter to post another picture of Kate supporting him at an event for the 2015 launch of his autobiography, Almost Interesting: The Memoir. The brand grew quickly and expanded to include shoes, luggage and other accessories, as well as a home line, stationery, and books.

"She was exceedingly kind, beautifully sensitive, insanely talented, amusing as heck and one of the most generous people I have ever known. I love getting them". She was just 55 years old, and her death is shocking, not just to the public, but to her own family members.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and founder, Kate Valentine Spade, who will remain in our hearts forever", the brand tweeted.

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.

Kate Spade New York has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores in America and more than 175 shops overseas, according to The Associated Press. "I love this pic of her". She believed in herself and her product. She was so sharp and quick on her feet.

"If you put a pulse into it and every fiber of your being, people are going to respond. She was always smiling, always happy, she had lovely manners, and she always looked attractive".
