Manolo says, the Time Magazine they have named our muse the Miuccia one of the 100 Most Influential Peoples of the 20th Century!
Creative director of one of the most powerful labels in fashion, Prada is credited with having “provoked and influenced colleagues for years with her eccentric and highly personal sensibility”. Known for having worn Courr?ges and Yves Saint Laurent while handing out communist flyers at protest marches in her youth, Miuccia never expected that she would make such a success of her grandfather’s luggage company. Now running it with the help of her husband Patrizio Bertelli, she has transformed it into a $2 billion conglomerate and her influence on international fashion trends is second-to-none. “Three seasons ago she launched the frumpy Fifties housewife look, which would rule other designers’ runways for several seasons,” says Kate Betts, who pays tribute to Miuccia in the magazine. “In February she stunned the colour-happy fashion industry with an all black collection. Which means that, for now at least, black is the new black.”
Of the course, this it is not the surprise to the Manolo he has long known that the Miuccia she is the influential genius of the first order. Still it is nice that the press of the mainstream they have finally come to this same conclusion.
