Miuccia Prada is regarded as one of the most influential fashion designers in modern history. With a penchant for setting trends and bucking the ideas of her fellow designers, the now 69-year-old has transformed a small family business into one of the world’s most renowned fashion houses.

Never shying away from a challenge, Prada has blended the old and the new, the ugly and the sublime, the vulgar and the simple, to show off a smorgasbord of ideas. No two collections look the same but it’s obvious that each well thought-out garment (Prada hates the term “intellectual”) has come from one great mind.
