Purpose and Values
Milan, 17th January 2021 - Following the digital presentation of the Fall/Winter 2021 Prada Men's show, Prada debuted an intimate online conversation between co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons and a selection of students from colleges and universities around the world, from the fields of fashion, art, design, architecture and philosophy. An evolution of the discussion that concluded the Spring/Summer 2021 “Dialogues” virtual runway show, these become true exchanges - not just responses to questions, but conversations, mediated digitally through video chat. These conversations reflect the passionate interest of both Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons in the power of education and the vital importance of nurturing the next generation of future creatives.
