About Patrizio Bertelli
Bertelli met his wife and business partner Miuccia Prada at a trade fair in 1977, same time as they took the helm of the family company. While she takes care of the creative flow of the company Patrizio Bertelli takes charge of the finances of the company. She and Patrizio Bertelli, took over the family-owned luxury goods manufacturer in 1978.
It was under Bertelli’s sway that the design house grew as a conglomerate adding such labels as Fendi, Helmut Lang, Jil Sander and Azzedine Alaia to its portfolio of brands. By 2007 they began to return to their core concerns. Jil Sander was sold back, Azzedine Alaia had bought back his company and Helmut Lang was sold in 2005.
