Description :The first retrospective of Prada’s women’s ready-to-wear collections, from 1988 to the present day, through original images from the runway shows. Founded in 1913 in Milan as a luxury leather goods company, Prada entered a new era in 1979 with the arrival of Miuccia Prada at the head of the family business. After focusing on accessories, the designer presented her first fashion collection in 1988, quickly establishing Prada as one of the most innovative luxury brands with her highly personal, refined and quietly subversive approach to fashion.
Celebrating more than thirty years of design, this anthology brings together all of the ready-to-wear shows. Fashion journalist Susannah Frankel provides a scholarly analysis, painting a portrait of an extraordinary designer and the history of one of the world’s most influential fashion houses. With more than 1,300 iconic photographs, this treasure trove of inspiration is an indispensable reference for fashion professionals and Prada fans alike.
