Prada is one of the most iconic brands in fashion history. The designers behind the brand have continually striven to be innovative while maintaining their classically refined style. The House of Prada has proven its longevity, and the Prada name will still be in demand for years to come.
Mario Prada opened the first Prada store in 1913 in the prestigious Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy. In 1919, Prada was awarded the title of Official Supplier of the Italian Royal House.
Mario's daughter Luisa Prada took over the family business as Mario’s successor and ran it for almost twenty years. In the mid-1970s, Luisa’s daughter, Miuccia Prada, joined her mother in the family business. Miuccia initially devoted herself to designing accessories. She did continue the tradition of producing high-quality bags and luggage for the family business.
In 1977, Miuccia Prada met Patrizio Bertelli, a young Italian with his own leather goods business. He joined the Prada family business and his partnership with Miuccia took the history of Prada in a new direction. Miuccia and Bertelli married in 1987, and the duo is still at the helm of the Prada family business.
Although the history of Prada is long, we know that you can’t get enough of the House of Prada even today.
