Their posts emerged hours after an official family statement was released to The New York Times. Vibrant. Colorful. And, most essentially, fun. Kate Spade's older sister, Reta Saffo, said that she had been trying to convince Kate to get help for several years without success and that Spade had been "self-medicating with alcohol".

Spade said he also wanted to clear up rumors and speculation that have surfaced about the couple's personal life. "We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly", the statement read.

Saffo said she had come "very" close to getting her sister into a treatment facility. The comedian shared multiple photos of the two smiling together, describing the designer as "so sharp and quick on her feet". They also enjoyed visits in New York City or New Mexico as Saffo tried to convince her to seek inpatient treatment. She could make me laugh so hard. "It's an adornment, not an obsession". "It was a real shift", Mallis said.

Spade seemingly had everything: fortune, fame, and family. "They were affordable AND terrific AND fabulous". You don't create a brand like that sitting on your ass.

And the bags seemed to effortlessly appeal to a variety of women. You couldn't walk into her boutiques and not smile.

The New York-based designer was found dead in her apartment on Tuesday at age 55 in a reported suicide.

He concluded the caption by again urging fans to "try to hang on".

After briefly attending the nearby University of Kansas, Ms. Spade transferred to Arizona State University.

WWDC 2018: Everything to expect from today's Apple WWDC keynote
Apple will have a two hour keynote for the WWDC event today in San Jose, California . iOS updates are usually the star of WWDC . However, unlike iOS updates in the past, iOS 12 may be more focused on refinement rather than offering a bunch of new features.

Her husband Andy was home at the time. Saffo said they would be watching news reports about his death. "She was a visionary".

"I, personally - I don't know about Andy - took off a good nine years raising my daughter, and absolutely adored every moment of it", she said.

"Kate Spade was more than a designer. I still have mine". I'm sorry to see that for many people, they still do not see viable options as an alternative to suicide. "I still have it".

Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri.

Spade was not only about bags: she would expand into shoes, apparel, luggage and other accessories, and stationery. But, "YES people" surrounded her for too long, so she didn't receive the proper care for what she believed to be Bipolar disorder, that came from her "immense celebrity". "I love sending them".

Ivanka's touching tribute has another poignancy, with the 36-year-old revealing her own struggles with mental health last year. Frances Valentine was bought by Coach in 2016.

Spade's husband and business partner, Andy Spade, had sold the brand in 2006 for more than $100m.

Wilson, of InStyle, recalled often finding her in her store, helping shoppers.

Speaking publicly for the first time since her death, Andy said that his wife had suffered from depression and anxiety and was being treated by a doctor for the past five years.
