Fashion stars remember Bourdain, SpadeBURBANK, Calif. - The celebratory mood at the Moschino fashion show was tinged with sadness over the recent deaths of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.
Actress-model Jaime King had met both but was more familiar with Spade, having started to work with the fashion icon when she was 14.
“She wanted to make beautiful handbags and beautiful clothes and bright colors and she was very whimsical and free. She made everybody feel welcome,” King said Friday night. “She just really paved the way for women in such a huge way that I don’t think a lot of people know about her.”
King also met Bourdain while filming “Kitchen Confidential,” a 2005 sitcom based on his best-selling memoir. She complimented him on his ability to cross “boundaries and races and circumstances.”
Bourdain killed himself in France on Friday, while Spade killed herself in New York earlier in the week. AP
