Miuccia Prada is an Italian fashion designer best known as the head of Prada, a fashion powerhouse that specializes in luxury goods. She was an unlikely entrepreneur, who had no formal fashion training when she took over her family’s luggage business in 1978. By 1985 she made a name for herself when she unveiled a series of black nylon handbags and backpacks with understated labeling; a stark contrast to the logo heavy product in fashion at the time.
Much of what set the company apart from the rest of the fashion world is her seeming disregard for the fashion industry. The designer has always blazed her own trail and demonstrated a fearlessness in trying new styles.
