Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

Kate Valentine (born Katherine Noel Brosnahan; December 24, 1962 – June 5, 2018), known professionally as Kate Spade, was an American fashion designer and businesswoman. She was the namesake and former co-owner of the designer brand Kate Spade New York.
After working in the accessories department at the fashion magazine Mademoiselle, Brosnahan and her husband Andy Spade founded the company in 1993, seeing a need for quality stylish handbags. Those she designed and produced quickly became popular, and the company expanded into other product lines. Six years later she sold a 56% stake in Kate Spade New York to Neiman Marcus Group; in 2006 she sold the rest of her shares. In 2016, she and her partners launched a new fashion brand called Frances Valentine.
