Prada was founded in 1913 by Mario and Martino Prada as a leather goods shop. Three generations later, in 1978, Miuccia Prada took the reins - she has since turned Prada into one of the most successful and influential fashion houses in the world.

Working alongside husband and business partner Patrizio Bertelli, Prada's ready-to-wear collections for both Prada and its sister label Miu Miu are eagerly anticipated by press and buyers alike and are informed by Prada's witty and intellectual aestheticism. In 1993,  Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli established Fondazione Prada, an art foundation that has supported and exhibited a number of artists including Louise Bourgeois, Dan Flavin, Barry McGee, Tom Friedman and Francesco Vezzoli, and has recently found a new home in a rejuvenated palazzo on Venice's Grand Canal. The Fondazione also plays host to Prada's shows during Milan Fashion Week.

New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art opened An Impossible Conversation, a retrospective of Prada and Italian couturier Elsa Schiaparelli in 2012. Miuccia Prada has received numerous accolades for her work, including the CFDA International Designer Award in 2004 and the first International Designer of the Year at the 2013 British Fashion Awards. . In 2018, the British Fashion Council awarded Miuccia Prada the Outstanding Achievement Award.

At the end of Milan Fashion Week in February 2020, Prada announced the Belgian designer Raf Simons would join Miucci Prada as co-creative director.
