Kate Spade found dead by suspected hanging in her Upper East Side home

Iconic designer Kate Spade was found dead Tuesday in a suspected suicide inside her Upper East Side home, cops said.

A housekeeper found the body of the 55-year-old fashion maven in her apartment on Park Avenue near E. 77th St. at about 10:20 a.m, police sources said. Spade hanged herself with a scarf, police sources said.

A note was found inside the home, suggesting Spade committed suicide, sources said.

Kate Spade New York has more than 140 retail shops around the U.S., and more than 175 elsewhere in the world.

But her handbags, with their modern look and bright pops of color, soon attracted legions of loyal buyers.

Kate Spade handbags lined the shelves at Barneys and other high-fashion retailers.

Spade parlayed her fame into three successful books, “Manners,” “Occasions,” and “Style.”

She sold the company in 2007 to focus on the couple’s daughter Frances, who was born in Feb. 2005.

But she returned to the fashion world in 2016 when she launched the Frances Valentine line in U.S. stores.

I don't know who this is...but suicide is always tragic.  Heartbroken for her and her family.

Her company made/makes some Disney based $$$ handbags and backpacks, and lots of other non Disney items.
