"Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years", the statement said.

"And it clearly wasn't her". We loved creating our businesses together. "We were co-parenting our attractive daughter", he stressed.

Andy Spade also said the couple was not legally separated and never discussed divorce.

He continued, "But it is sad and very hurtful, given the pain the family is enduring, that people with no real knowledge of the situation are leaking false, speculative information that maligns Kate's character and belittles the health issues she bravely fought".

Spade is believed to have hanged herself with a red scarf tied to her bedroom doorknob, according to The New York Times, which reported that she'd left a note. She was 55 years old.

Andy Spade said he was appalled that "a private message to my daughter" had been shared with the media. Their daughter Bea was living with both of them and they saw each other or spoke every day.

Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand past year for $2.4 billion. "Kate loved Bea so very much".

"But we certainly miss our bright, sunshiney little person", he tells the newspaper, adding that his daughter would have been gratified to know the discourse surrounding her death had potential to help someone else.

Spade was born on Christmas Eve of 1962 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Spade - a Missouri native who first worked as a journalist, including a stint as accessories editor at Mademoiselle magazine - launched her Kate Spade fashion label in 1993 with her husband Andy and the help of outside investors.

"She had a light that words can't capture but touched everyone she came into contact with", Brosnahan wrote on Instagram alongside a video of the designer dancing with Andy Spade.

She walked away from the company in 2007, a year after it was acquired from the Neiman Marcus Group for $125 million (then known as Liz Claiborne Inc.).

Frances Valentine, with which she was involved until her death, focuses exclusively on shoes and handbags.

Early reports of Kate's death mentioned a possible note the designer left behind for her daughter - something that, if it exists, should absolutely have been kept confidential by everyone who arrived at the scene.

On behalf of the CFDA, CEO Steven Kolb and designer Diane von Furstenberg released a statement to say they felt "devastated".
