Kate Spade

It is hard to believe that it’s been an entire year since we found out about Kate Spade’s passing. The world was stunned when news broke that the 55-year-old died by suicide on June 5, 2018.

The passing of the designer sparked a vital conversation about mental health, highlighting the fact that anyone can suffer and struggle, no matter what they have. Her company has continued to highlight the importance of providing support for those suffering from mental health issues by donating to numerous charities.

Kate Spade New York have vowed to match donations to The Jed Foundation. They will match donations up to $100,000.

They have also generously given grants to mental health organisations Fountain House and Didi Hirsch.

In honour of Kate’s anniversary, they shared a heartfelt tribute on Twitter.

They wrote: “She was smart, chic, artful, witty, charming, trailblazing, gracious & so much more.

“Kate Spade inspired millions of women to stand out in a crowd. We honor the life of our visionary founder and all the joy and beauty she brought into this world. Her vision inspires us every day,” they added.

The anniversary of Kate Spade has encouraged her fans to reach out to their loved ones to remind them they’re not alone in their struggles.

Showing one another that there is support out there makes a difference. It shows those who are struggling that they are not fighting this battle alone.

Kate is survived by her husband Andy and their 14-year-old daughter Frances.


Kate Spade’s passing shattered the hearts of millions of people around the world.

Many people were stunned to hear the designer died by suicide, because “she had it all,” but as many people pointed out- mental health affects everyone.

At the time of her death, her husband Andrew shared that the 55-year-old had been battling many personal demons.

Over a month has passed since her death and Andrew has taken to Instagram to post about the tragic loss.

He shared a photo of a tree decorated in colourful lights outside their family friend’s home.

“She was born Christmas Eve, 1962. She loved the Midwest, the desert, and the city,” he wrote.

Andrew explained that their daughter Bea had spent some time with family friends shortly after her mum’s death.

“I was lucky enough to have dear friends let my daughter stay at their home through a difficult time,” he shared. Bea and her dad decorated the tree in honour of Kate: “This tree was standing alone beside the house so we ordered those multi colored, old fashioned lights from Amazon or Target and another dear personal friend gave me a really Iong extension cord.”

He continued: “Bea and I cut a star out of the cardboard box the lights came on and wrapped it in Reynolds wrap like we do every Christmas.”

Andrew and Bea’s moving tribute to the woman they loved will bring a tear to your eye. Christmas is bound to be a harrowing time for both of them, but we’re sure they’ll find comfort in their memories of Kate.

“I love everything in my collection. I’m a shoe girl; I’m a dress girl. I have everything, it’s strong, it’s pink, it’s polka dots, it’s fun. All of these things are things Kate Spade does well. So it works.”

We CANNOT wait for this! 


Whether she’s dressed in high street or high end attire, Kate Middleton always manages to land a spot on our best dressed list.

Stepping out for World Mental Health Day, the Duchess of Cambridge was snapped today wearing a stunning floral chiffon dress of Kate Spade design.

The mother of two paired the pink number – which features a collared bow tie neck and dark buttons to the front – with a set of nude heels and a matching clutch.

According to katespade.com, the Encore Rose Chiffon Dress retails for $498 (around €450) and is still available for purchase online in a range of sizes.

But since the “Kate Middleton Effect” is bound to hit soon, we’d advise buying this dress ASAP.

Remember when you and your loved ones almost came to blows over THAT dress?

Blue, black, white, gold – at this stage no one really cares, and that's not because we've above fighting over the colour of certain items, but because we've found a new one to focus on.

It all started when Twitter user, corso, took to social media earlier this week to pay tribute to her stunning new Kate Spade bag.

After writing "Everyone say hello to my new baby", one of corso's followers commented on the colour… only to realise he wasn't seeing the same colour as the bag's new owner.

And Twitter is now in meltdown.

1. We had this guy fearing the worst

2. This gal laying it on the line

3. This guy getting super technical

4. This guy getting flashbacks

5. And then we had this girl… telling it like it is.

Blue or white, personally we just want the bag.
