Fashion and accessory designer. The house was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Mario Prada as a high quality leather goods purveyor. After a period of decline in the 1950s-1970s, Miuccia Prada, niece of Mario, had great success with new designs for bags. She presented her first pret-a-porter collection in 1985, and the house has since become extremely successful and is known for Ms. Prada's youthful and unusual designs.
