Miuccia Prada is an Italian fashion designer (Prada, Miu Miu) and
entrepreneur. In 1978 she entered into her family's business of
manufacturing luxury leather bags, a company established by her
grandfather in 1913. Around the same time Miuccia met her now husband
and business partner, Patrizio Bertelli. In 1985, Miuccia had her first
hit when she designed a line of black, finely woven nylon handbags that
instantly became a hit. By 1989, Miuccia designed and introduced her
first women's ready-to-wear collection that was critically acclaimed;
men's wear followed in 1995. Miu Miu was introduced in 1992 as a less
expensive women's wear line that was inspired by Miuccia's personal
wardrobe and nickname. Miuccia was honored with the prestigious Council
of Fashion Designers of America International Award in 1993. The
following year she showed her collections in both New York's and
London's fashion week, although she had already become a staple of
Milan's fashion week.
