A series of digital talks exploring culture, fashion and life via Instagram
Fashion exists as an essential part of a wider cultural conversation: it is a participant in a dialogue, between different beliefs, disciplines and mediums.
At this moment, in a current landscape being fundamentally re-shaped by limitation, it is essential not to allow that limitation to define discussion. With that mindset, Prada presents Prada Possible Conversations, a series of live dialogues between thinkers, cultural arbiters and fashion figures across the world - bringing together individuals, bringing together thoughts.
A digital iteration and evolution of Prada's international live event programmes, speakers are connected together on Prada’s Instagram to engage in real-time conversations.
Each Prada Possible Conversation will also result in a donation from Prada to UNESCO, whose work during the COVID-19 pandemic focuses on the importance of culture, creativity, and education for over 1.5 billion students worldwide affected by school and university closure, as well as on a programme to increase international cooperation in science.
Echoing a belief in fashion's inherent dialectical nature - the push and pull of inspiration from the realms of art and architecture, music, cinema and more - Prada Possible Conversations reflect the plurality and layered meaning of the Prada universe.
