Donatella Versace, Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld have all received the prestigious accolade. And today, the British Fashion Council announced that Miuccia Prada is the next figurehead to be honoured with the Outstanding Achievement Award for her overwhelming creative contribution to the industry, at The Fashion Awards 2018 in partnership with Swarovski. Mrs Prada took over her family business in 1978, transforming the Italian leather goods house into one of the most revered ready-to-wear labels in the world, with an unconventional and intelligent approach to luxury that would become her signature. She has now been at the helm of Prada, as Lead Creative Director and Co-Chief Executive Officer for four decades. “We are thrilled to be honouring Miuccia Prada with the Outstanding Achievement Award for being an incredible design maverick and for spearheading the evolution of the Prada group from a family business to a global brand,” said Caroline Rush, the British Fashion Council’s CEO. “We look forward to celebrating with her on the 10th of December alongside industry family and friends.”
