Although Miuccia Prada’s childhood gave her a front row view of the clothing industry—her respective grandfather and uncle Mario and Martino Prada launched their self-named leathers goods shop in 1913 before passing it on to her mother—she originally had other career plans. However, after stints studying political science and working as a mime, the family business beckoned and she decided to give designing a try. Her first line for the brand was a insanely popular range of Prada nylon bags, an endeavor proved so lucrative she decided to branch into ready-to-wear next. The choice was a life-altering one, turning the little label in a powerhouse empire and the designer into a bona fide industry leader. Today, the label's forward-thinking, luxurious, and innovative designs—including Prada shoes, bags, and clothing, continue to set the tone for the fashion landscape today.
