She was found dead Tuesday in NY in an apparent suicide, according to the Associated Press, citing unidentified law enforcement officials.

Spade, 55, hanged herself and was found by her housekeeper at her home on Park Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side, the New York Daily News reported, citing unnamed police officials.

Officers said Spade left a note on the scene assuring her 13-year-old daughter, who was at school at the time, that it was not her fault, according to the AP. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The officials didn't know what the note said. Her line started with just six different handbags, and found enough customers that Spade opened her first NY store in 1996. And just past year, Coach announced that they're acquiring the brand for $2.4 billion.

Ms Spade took time off from the fashion industry, but launched a new brand called Frances Valentine in 2016, offering a line of luxury handbags and shoes.

Spade's handbags were a must-have, and she ranked among the NY designers to cement the minimalist look. She is survived by her aforementioned husband, Andy, and daughterFrances Beatrix Spade.

In an email to FN, Kate Spade New York said, "We at Kate Spade New York just learned of the incredibly sad news that Kate Spade has passed".
