Kate Spade suffered from mental illness for years: sister

Kate Spade suffered from mental illness for years: sister

Spade was born in Kansas City, MO, in 1962, and she attended the University of Kansas before transferring to Arizona State University.

Spade's apparent suicide on Tuesday, at age 55 inside the bedroom of her New York Park Avenue apartment, "was not unexpected by me", Reta Saffo, Spade's older sister by two years, told The Star by email from her house in Santa Fe, N.M. "Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years", Andy said.

But, Saffo says that her sister's struggle with mental illness and thoughts of suicide have gone on for years. They claim that Saffo had always been estranged from the family.

A source close to the Spade family tells ET that "Kate was a kind, generous, funny, warm and extremely private person". No matter how successful you may be, depression doesn't care. Saffo says her sister never expected it, wasn't prepared for it, and never sought treatment.

Ivanka is also a fashion designer, with her namesake brand creating bags, clothing and accessorises for women. "Please!'", Saffo said. "I know she perhaps had a plan, but she insisted she did not".

The couple divorced in 1972, but the family remained close, according Mr. Brosnahan, who said he talked to Katy, as she was known to family and friends, nearly daily.

"I'd spoken with them on the phone (not telling them exactly who the patient would be)", Saffo said. "She had a quirky visual language that captivated Bat Mitzvah girls and artists alike", wrote actress Lena Dunham on Twitter.

Kate was found dead on Tuesday morning in her Manhattan home by a housekeeper.

Speaking to US Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show, Ivanka said: "With each of my three children I had some level of postpartum depression". I have worn her clothes many, many times.

Spade - a Missouri native who first worked as a journalist, including a stint as accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine - launched her Kate Spade fashion label in 1993 with her husband Andy and the help of outside investors.

The famed handbag designer told Page Six in January she and her daughter, Frances, 13, jumped up and down when Brosnahan won the Golden Globe for her role in The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.

"She and Andy, they were a team". The site went on to report that the couple had already separated and that Andy had moved out of the family's home. However, it appears he was at the apartment when Spade's body was discovered.
