Today, we remember Kate Spade for the spirited refinement that she brought to her namesake brand that inspired us to immerse our lives in color.  

She will forever be associated with the spirit of celebrations, both big and small.

With her designs and her words, she taught us to appreciate all parts of ourselves, even the quirky parts, and at the same time, permit ourselves to feel empowered and beautiful. 

For many young women, their first Kate Spade bag is a rite of passage to adulthood.

She leaves behind a legacy and vision of creativity that will surely inspire young, emerging artists and designers to carry forth.

Here at Outside Inspirations, we remember her family and loved ones at this difficult time.

Rest easy, Kate.
