A source in the police department told the news site that Spade had hanged herself.

Kate Spade was sister-in-law to actor, comedian, and Saturday Night Live veteran David Spade.

Her brand, Kate Spade New York, has hundreds of stores around the world.

The fashion designer was found dead in an apparent suicide in her apartment Tuesday morning.

Her husband and business partner, Andy Spade, was in the apartment at the time, while their daughter was at school. "Holding Kate's family, friends and loved ones in my heart", Ms Clinton tweeted. "We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very hard time", they wrote. She spoke about her inspiration for the line previous year.

New York City police say the fashion designer's death appears to be a suicide.

The company says its thoughts are with the Spade family.

The NYPD confirmed that she was found unconscious and unresponsive due to an apparent suicide.

News of Kate Spade's death rocked the industry when the Associated Press reported the handbag and accessories designer's death at her Park Avenue apartment in NY shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Law enforcement officials say Tuesday, June 5, 2018, that NY fashion designer Kate Spade has been found dead in her apartment in an apparent suicide.

She is survived by her husband Andy, who is the brother of David, and their 13-year-old daughter Frances.

Officials on the scene said they could not give more detail while the investigation is still ongoing.

The officials said she was found with a red scarf around her neck attached to a doorknob.

In 1993 Spade launched her fashion label, Kate Spade New York, with her husband Andy.

Although she hasn't been involved in the company that sells Kate Spade branded bags for many years, the designer's death could have an impact via the so-called halo effect in shoppers' minds, said Brian Yarbrough, an analyst at Edward Jones. Prior to launching her fashion line, Spade spent five years at "Mademoiselle", a women's magazine, and eventually become a senior fashion editor and head of accessories.

Spade's handbags were a must-have, and she ranked among the NY designers to cement the minimalist look.

Kate Spade was born Katherine Brosnahan and grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. However, Kate apparently sold of her company to Coach for an estimated $2.4 billion in 2007.
