Brosnahan was born in Kansas City, Missouri, the daughter of June (Mullen) and Earl Francis Brosnahan. She was of mostly Irish descent. She graduated from St. Teresa's Academy, an all-girl Catholic high school. She attended the University of Kansas and then transferred to Arizona State University, joined Kappa Kappa Gamma, and graduated with a degree in journalism in 1985.

In 1986, Spade worked in the accessories department at Mademoiselle in Manhattan, where she was credited in the magazine's masthead by her maiden name, as Katy Brosnahan. While at Mademoiselle, she moved in with Andy Spade, a native of Scottsdale, Arizona. The two had worked side-by-side as salespersons in a men's clothing store, Carter's Men Shop, in Phoenix.

She left Mademoiselle in 1991, with the title of senior fashion editor/head of accessories. While working for Mademoiselle, she had noticed that the market lacked stylish and sensible handbags, and decided to create her own.
