Kate Brosnahan Spade, who created an iconic, accessible handbag line that bridged Main Street and high-end fashion, hanged herself from the ceiling in on Tuesday at her Manhattan apartment.
Incidentally, Spade who launched her namesake label in 1993 was famous for her colorful, cheerful designs, which often incorporated eye-catching prints, bright shades and embellishments. Even after exiting the company in 2007, the designer's signature aesthetic remained in place, and made Kate Spade designs a young Hollywood favorite. So in her memory, here's the list Kate’s loyal customer from Hollywood.
