We Love: Kate Spade
The fashion designer Kate Spade was born Katherine Noel Brosnahan in 1962 in Kansas City, Missouri. After graduating from Arizona State University in 1986, Kate Spade made her way to New York City to work for Mademoiselle magazine. She spent five years there, eventually becoming a senior fashion editor and head of accessories. While working for Mademoiselle she noticed that the market lacked stylish and sensible handbags, and decided to create her own. With this in mind, Kate browsed local flea markets, began researching different styles, fabrics, production costs, and created a line of handbags with classic shapes, colours, and fabrics. She launched her own line of handbags in 1993.
