Kate Spade's death has officially been confirmed as suicide by the Medical Examiner's Office in New York City.

Spade's body was discovered on Tuesday by a cleaner in her Park Avenue home.

The husband and business partner of designer Kate Spade, who died in an apparent suicide, said she suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. "We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy".

Kate Spade New York has more than 140 retail shops and outlet stores in America and more than 175 shops overseas, according to The Associated Press. Contrary to some media reports, Spade said "she was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety for the last five years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety".

He stressed that Kate had not been abusing any substances or alcohol, nor had there been any business problems.

The last I'd talked with her, the night before last, she was happy, planning a trip to California to look at colleges.

Brosnahan, 90, said he just didn't "know what happened" and reiterated that he'd spoken to Spade on Monday, the day before her death and that she seemed fine, despite her problems. "They never really gave her much respect... the public loved her, but the critics didn't, and it always hurt her".

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.

"For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other", he said. Our daughter was our priority.

Andy's statement continued, "This is the truth".

Spade's husband, Andy Spade, also issued a statement contradicting several claims made by Saffo, including that that she did not seek treatment for her mental illnesses, while paying tribute to his "best friend for 35 years". Her sister described attempts to place Spade in inpatient care, but said she refused, fearing she would harm her brand's "happy-go-lucky" image. "Kate loved Bea so very much".
