In Memory of Kate Spade

The fashion world, the planner community, and the world lost a visionary this week. Kate Spade has been an inspiration to me for many, many years. I have always been inspired by the company’s products and aesthetic.

Even though Kate moved onto other things, the legacy she left for the company is so inspiring. She was a leader, and though it sounds like she suffered towards the end of her life, that makes her even more endearing. She was a powerful individual, yet so real and an example to women. We are so lucky to have physical reminders of her legacy through her products.

In Memory of Kate SpadeWe all are going through something at one point or another in life, and it is not shameful to ask for help. We are not meant to go through this life alone. I began receiving help for myself last year, and it has done me a world of good. Talk to someone- a friend, church leader, counselor, doctor, or helpline. What you’re feeling is not weird or unusual, and there is someone out there who can help you get back on track. The world is a tough place, but you do not have to suffer.

RIP Kate
