Forbes have released their annual financial roundups of the world’s richest people this week. In amongst the world’s richest men, world’s richest under 40 and world’s fastest growing billionaires, there’s also a list of world’s richest women. Miuccia Prada is just out of the top ten with a fortune estimated at $11.1 billion. Yeah, that’s pretty substantial. However, anyone seeing how many magazine covers this designer is scoring every season wouldn’t be surprised by such a number.
Season after season, Prada remains a fashion winner. Editors, stylists, celebs and bloggers cannot find enough positive adjectives in the dictionary to describe their love for each new collection. From catwalk clothing to accessories, Prada has the Midas touch.
Now that being said, it’s not all good news for Prada as apparently a decline in stock price resulted in a 15% decrease in wealth this year. When you are talking in the billions, that’s a lot of dough… or Prada handbags.
Other notable fashion figures on Forbes’ world’s richest women list include… oh wait, there weren’t any others. Miuccia Prada, we take our hats off to you.
