My heart aches reading the news of the passing of one of my favorite designers. I’ve drawn so much inspiration from Kate Spade, and fell in love with her work at an early age. I remember shopping the Kate Spade New York store on Fifth Ave during my first trip to NYC was one of the highlights of the trip. Her colorful and clean design, wit, and disregard for others opinions always left me in awe. She was truly revolutionary, and was one of the first female designers to shatter the glass ceiling.
Mental health is important. Loving yourself & knowing that others love you is important, and seeking help when you feel you’ve lost control is important. Although a bleak day, I hope this is able to shed light on the stigma of mental illness, as it has no discrimination on who it targets.
Live colorfully, always. ♠️
