Valentine sold ownership of her stake in the Kate Spade brand in 2007, and with her husband proceeded to launch another brand named after her family, Frances Valentine, in 2016. “When we sold the company in 2007, it was really to focus on our family. It really was. It was a grind. I had just had a baby,” she told CNBC in May 2016.

The plan for Frances Valentine was to keep it in the family. “My grandfather, father, brother, and my daughter’s name is Frances. And then Valentine was my mom’s dad’s middle name because he was born on Valentine’s day,” she told WWD in November 2015.

“The most fun thing about what I do I would say is working with friends and family. I would say the most challenging part is working with friends and family. I’m kidding,” she said in May 2017.
