kate spade began in 1993, when Kate Brosnahan, a former accessories editor at Mademoiselle, set out to design the sleek, utilitarian handbag she'd been craving for years but hadn't been able to find. Over time, the brand expanded to include handbags, accessories, jewellry, shoes, apparel, eyewear, hosiery, tabletop, paper and fragrance. In 2007, kate spade turned the reins to Liz Claiborne, Inc. Deborah Lloyd, formerly of Banana Republic and Burberry, took the helm as president and chief creative officer with an aim to broaden the line while honoring the brand's rich history.
