Miuccia Prada’s inherence of the company in 1978 from her grandfather marked the beginning of the making of a luxury powerhouse. Her first design, nylon bags, was initially disregarded but later reached commercial success and has now become a signature of Prada’s. The first women’s ready-to-wear collection made its debut in 1989 and its opulence instantaneously caught the attention of the fashion world. Prada’s success reached new heights in the 90’s and a sister line, Miu Miu, was launched along with a men’s ready-to-wear collection. Menswear is celebrated for its classic tailoring, bold prints and geometric cutting. Today, the Prada collections are known for its quirk and its contradictory and juxtaposing themes. Miuccia is often regarded as one of fashion’s most talented designers for her revolutionary designs, offbeat color ways and unconventional use of fabrics at Prada.
