Katherine Noel Valentine Brosnahan Spade, popularly known as "Kate Spade," was a renowned American fashion designer, entrepreneur, and fashion icon. 

She was born on December 24, 1962, in Kansas City, Missouri, United States. She was the co-owner and co-founder of Kate Spade New York

When she was in her college time, she used to work in sales at Carter's Men Shop until one day, she came up with the idea of establishing her own brand with her co-worker and husband, Andy Spade

She was really successful and dedicated to her work until one day, she was found dead, hanging herself. The death was considered suicide. 

It has been known that Kate was depressed and suffered from anxiety for several years. She was reported dead on June 5, 2018, at the age of 55 in New York City

Andy has three brothers, from his mother, Judith M. Spade, who is a writer and a magazine editor, and his father, Wayne M. Spade, a sales representative. 

His brothers Bryne and David Spade. David is an American actor, TV host, stand-up comedian, and writer. 

Talking about his education status, he fulfilled his education at Arizona State University

In the university, he met his wife and a friend with whom he worked and founded the advertising firm Spade and Partners and the sleepwear brand Sleepy Jones


Andy and Kate shared their traits and characteristics when at work. In the interview, Andy says that Kate is detail-oriented at work, and he thinks conceptually when at work. 

Andy described himself as someone who sets something up and Kate as someone who finishes it.

They shared their experience in establishing Kate Spade New York. Kate also complimented Andy for his understanding behavior in her business. 

She also said that he is very active and possesses good business skills. 


When Kate and Andy weren't married, Kate was working as an editor in fashion and was tired of carrying the bags or suitcases around and running on trips. 

She didn't like the way the employees of the company were treated, and one day, her employer treated her assistant poorly, which made her quit her job in the magazine. 

Kate was upset, and Andy told her, let's start a business. 

Since Kate was working as an accessories editor, she would go around the country and world and find the best bags, jewelry, and shoes to present. 

She would say that there is nothing between the European bags as she simply wanted a simple tote that's stylish, not dumb, but has a really simple and practical side to it. 

Andy said he could do it. To which Kate replied, saying she had never designed and we couldn't do it. 

Andy said We are not starting a company, but we are just making a bag, let's make a bag. 

After two to three years, they both were exhausted, working from their apartment and sleeping on their friend's couches, and they weren't making a profit. 

Since they didn't have any background in starting a business, they realized they needed physical help. 

They didn't need money but needed someone who was an expert in production and another who was an expert in sales. 

They turned to their friends as they needed someone they could trust and who could be a big contributor.

Then they brought two partners and, after a while, told them we couldn't do it anymore and we were leaving. 

The two partners came back and told them, Look, we just joined, and we can't leave, and the company is on its way and about to take off, and it's working. 

They made it through their partners, who helped them and covered for them, and they made through it.

When they started the business, they just had six shapes of bags. 

They started thinking about other opportunities and thought about the aesthetic that they were bringing to it, like the designs and qualities. 

They wanted to find their core competency, their passion, and what they loved personally. 

They discovered that they couldn't make a promise without loving it and believing in what they do.
