Founded in Milan, Italy by Mario Prada, the luxury designer brand Prada had a long journey to international success yet the family has been a staple business leader in the Milano community since 1824 with the opening of a bakery in the heart of Milan. Once Miucca Prada took the reigns of the company in 1978, she devoted herself to accessories design and her first international success was introducing the world to the classic Prada Vela nylon backpack.
