Prada

Prada is an Italian fashion label created by Mario Prada, Prada Handbagspecializing in luxury products for people including, handbags, accessories, shoes, luggage and hats. The label is really a status symbol. The corporation was commenced by Fratelli Prada and by Mario Prada with a shop that procured leather items in Milan, Italy. After Fratelli's died in the 50's and Mario's son had aboslutely no interest in the fashion business, Mario's daughter-in- law took over the Prada line and has nurtured it for over 20 years. Her daughter, Miuccia Prada, joined the company in 1970. Miuccia's creating of the waterproof backpack started Prada's ascent into the high-fashion world. Miuccia came into the company in 1978 at which time sales were big, upto $450,000. She had made Patrizio Bertelli, another leathergood designer and made him her business manager and Miuccia was permitted time to put into play her creativity in fashion design. Cheap Prada Purses and Handbags

She would continue to incorporate her plans into the house of Prada that would alter it forever. She unveiled her first set of backpacks and totes in 1979. They were constructed from a tough military spec black nylon. Popularity however was not instant, as they were difficult to sell as a result of lack of advertising and their high-prices, however the lines would later prove to turn into her first big market commercial hit. Next, Miuccia and Bertelli sought after wholesale accounts for the bags in premium department stores and boutiques across the world. The following year, Prada unveiled its nylon tote. That same year, the house of Prada started expansion throughout continental Europe by starting locations in prominent shopping areas inside of Prada-cross-shoulder-bagFlorence, Paris, Madrid, and New York City. Prada introduced its women's collection in 1989, and the designs came to be recognized for their dropped waistlines and narrow belts. Prada's popularity skyrocketed when the fashion world took notice of its clean lines, opulent fabrics, and basic colors. It would be identified with wealthier working ladies who held challenging employment.

The logo for the label, the Prada silver- and black triangle, wasn't as apparent a design component as those on bags from other popular luxury brands like Louis Vuitton. And its initial appeal for the clothing and handbags was its image of reverse snobbery. Today the Prada handbag is still one of the most popular brands in women's purse. A classic that is sure to enjoy ongoing popularity and appeal. Cheap Prada Purses and Handbags

Juicy Couture


Juicy Couture is probably the most fascinating story of handbag and On the Juicy Couture website on the About page all you will see is a an image of a kings marquee with the message that says: Juicy Couture Handbag

Once upon a time in a land far far away called Pacoima, there were two nice girls who liked stuff. Juicy Couture swept the land and they lived happily ever after, pretty cool!

Juicy is known for their signature velour tracksuits but they're also renowned for creating the coolest and most original handbags on the market today. The line called Juicy Couture was to feature different athletic and casual wear, particularly the velour tracksuit that landed Juicy Couture a lot of popularity. Taylor and Levy didn’t have a lot funds with which to start their label, thus leading to painstaking start- up for this company. In 1996, after starting their business and seeking to have the brand within the public eye, the ladies sent their accomplished designs to celebrities. Madonna, credited with turning the velour tracksuit into a trend, was sent a track suit and it was Madonna, that once seen wearing that suit made Juicy Couture worldwide known brand.  Since its success the label was purchased by Liz Claiborne and it is reported to have sold $258 million worth of Juicy Couture merchandise in the first six months, not bad for two young girls from Pacoima!
