MIU MIU

For those of you who may not know, Miu Miu is an Italian designer, it is fully owned subsidiary under Prada, which is another famous Italian designer.

For my Language course I decided to take Italian because I really wanted to learn the language and visit Rome some day. Italy is really big on fashion, and quality luxury brands which is beautiful, a few of my favorite Italian designers are, Moscino, Miu Miu, Fendi, Giorgio Armani, and the list goes on.

For a class project we were asked to present anything of our choice, so my partner and I choose to discuss a few of our favorite Italian designers. Of course I needed to do some research on these designers and I chose Moschino, Fendi, and Moschino. This was mostly because I own at least one item of each of these brands and I have just always loved them.

To be honest, I had no clue that they were Italian. I talked about on Moscino because he was very interesting to talk about. While researching other designers, I read about Miu Miu and how it was discovered in 1993 by the  Miuccia Prada. In 2012 Miu Miu launched a women’s tale series. This was basically a list of short films that were produced in conjunction with high profile female directors. The outcome was a list of short silent films that featured Miu Miu collections. The first four short films premiered at the 69th Venice International Film Festival  and were directed by Zoe Cassavettes,  Lucrecia Martel, Giada Colagrande, and Massy Tadjedin. A fifth film that debut in 2013, was written and directed by Ava DuVernay and also starred. On March 14, 2013, a counter report of Prada in violating women’s rights was reported to Office of the united Nation High commissioner for Human Rights Committee on economic, Social and cultural Rights. On May 17, 2013, a statement against Sexual

harassment  and gender discrimination at workplace was released by the UN Committee. In April 2013, an American change.org petition against Miuccia Prada, collected over 200K signatures around the world. This petition was against Miuccia Prada for countersuing a victim for voicing her opinion againstSexual harassment. This petition damaged the brand image. On May 28, 2013, The UN has backed former Prada employee Bovrisse over the sexual harassment and discrimination case of Prada. Vogue launched a news article, “Prada Vs The UN” with a comment, “Anyone who buys from the Prada and Miu Miu brands are supporting a culture of discrimination and power harassment. 

I then decided to see what these tales were and found it quite interesting, but I only found one them really interesting, I decided to do a little commentary  Click this link to view, Miu Miu Women Tales and also share this with you.

This video was really inspiring and also a very good put together that I am sure many people can relate, forming a bond and and having people to bring out what is already there Is really all we need. and its very necessary to watch so watch It.
