The body of designer Kate Spade is removed from her apartment building in NY on Tuesday.

He said she "sounded happy" the night before her death, and added that his priority is caring for their daughter as she deals with her "unimaginable grief".

The designer reportedly died by suicide. Spade, 55, addressed her daughter in the note, according to two New York Police Department sources. "At the time, bags were too complicated, and I really loved very simple kind of architectural shapes", Spade said a year ago on the NPR show "How I Built This with Guy Raz". She was honored twice by the Council of Fashion Designers of America throughout a career marked by cheerful colors and peppy patterns.

Spade was 55 and is survived by her husband Andy, and their 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade.

"Bea-I have always loved you. We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very hard time".

Spade was born and raised Katherine Brosnahan in Kansas City, graduating from St Teresa's Academy, and then attending the University of Kansas before transferring to Arizona State University.

"She really felt she could power through it on her own", she said.

On social media, many women recalled their first Kate Spade bag. Spade and her husband sold their remaining stake in the company in 2006 to Neiman Marcus for almost $60 million.

Elsewhere, Saffo claimed she tried to help her sister to receive help for her bipolar disorder, for which she claimed Spade refused to receive treatment for.

Kate's husband explained that he is now focused on protecting his daughter's privacy as he and her both struggle with the loss of her mother. The couple recently had started a new handbag company, Frances Valentine. Kate Spade's death comes about a year after the brand she and her husband created was sold yet again. The brand also released a statement on social media. "I mean, they were no-names", she said. "We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family".
