Miuccia Prada

Prada, Miu Miu

Born in Milan in 1949 with the name Maria Bianchi, Miuccia Prada would not follow the path of any typical fashion powerhouse. In fact, her intense academic path is so far away from the stereotypical glitz and glamour of the fashion world, that one would think she intentionally steered herself in such a direction.

In 1913, Miuccia’s grandfather, Mario Prada, started the original Prada label. The signature handbags, shoes and walrus-skinned suitcases were famous across Europe and the United States, garnering a fan base that would somehow weather both World Wars (source). The classic leather accessories and waterproof handbags designed by Mario would become the essence of the Prada label standard of class and elegance.

The reason I say she's an inspiration is because she seem lk a perfectionist not do much a jerk. That's what I'm striving 4! I was watching the vid and she seems lk she know when to b serious& when to to b warm unlike Ana wintour and who knows...muicia seems pretty cool. That would n cool to hang with her4 a day... It's a good vid I enjoyed watchig!;)
