When it comes to great fashion designers of our time Miuccia Prada comes pretty high on the list. An innovator whose work straddles contemporary art, design and architecture, she's created a brand that's about so much more than fashion. The designer gave a rare interview with Guardian Weekly - here are five things we learnt about her that make us love her that little bit more.
1. Aged 14, she was the first person in her school to become a hippy.
2. She has a penchant for turban. For more on MyDaily's obsession with this particular head garment, please click here.

5. She doesn't wear jeans. Like evs.
