The following is a guest post from our friends at POPSUGAR Fashion.
Although Prada started as a leather goods shop in 1913 by brothers Martino and Mario Prada, it was Mario’s great granddaughter, Miuccia Prada, who made it so successful. Her first big hit was a line of waterproof backpacks and totes in 1979, which later inspired the release of Prada’s definitive nylon handbags in 1984. In 1989, Miuccia and her partner, Patrizio Bertelli, launched Prada’s first ready-to-wear line, which instantly gained recognition for its clean lines and luxe fabrics.
Now, with Miuccia at its helm for more than 30 years, Prada is known for artful, whimsical collections that range from ladylike, curve-conscious dressing one season to dramatic textures and boxy shapes the next. The brand has had so many memorable shows, we just had to share some of our favorite runway moments—including looks from 10 years ago!—visit POPSUGAR Fashion check them out now.
