Kate Spade Death: The Most Important Lesson We Should Learn

June 09, 2018

This week, the fashion world was devastated when news broke out that designer and brand founder, Kate Spade committed suicide on June 5.  In an article that appeared on CNN (June 6), Kate Brosnahan Spade, the known designer hanged herself at her Manhattan apartment and was later found by her housekeeper along with a suicide note that mentioned her daughter and husband.
“Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years,” Andy said. “She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this,” Andy continued." - Andy Spade, HollywoodLife.com
Again, we lost a wonderful soul to depression.[/caption] Although, Kate Spade has no longer been part of the brand for a decade (Kate Spade is now owned by luxury brand, Coach) celebrities and other prominent people were quick to share their sentiments about the designers' sudden demise.

Apart from celebrities and socialites, the world wide web in general also shared their thoughts on how to honor the late designer, but more than that, netizens shared their two cents on depression and suicide as a whole.

Among all the messages shared by people around the world, one post struck and made an impact the most.  On June 6, facebook user, Claudia Herrera shared a very on point message that not only honored the designer but also faced the facts that mental illness is just as serious as any illness we are aware of.  As of writing, the post has been shared 230,836 times and we wish and hope it could be shared more.
