Calling all Prada lovers. Have you made the fashion pilgrimage to the Pradasphere exhibition at Harrods yet? The month long exhibition is a rare insight into the extraordinary vision of Miuccia Prada and a must see for any fashion enthusiast.

In celebration of all things Miuccia, Team ELLE takes a look back at some of their favourite Prada moments – from catwalk highlights to memorable personal anecdotes.

There are too many.

Is it my first "designer" bag, which was Prada, sporty, white and £350? I still remember the price, it made my eyes water.

Was it when I interviewed Patrizio Bertelli at Prada HQ and he made me eat vitello tonnato (veal and tuna) and he was so brilliant and funny?

Is it the arguments we have in the back of the ELLE van after every single Prada show over the last ten years? Every show is a moment.

Anne-Marie Curtis – Fashion Director

Some Highlights:

Spring 2000 - THAT lipstick collection.

Spring 2002 - 60's couture meets futurist Asia. I have one of the skirts from this; it still feels ultra modern and new, even now.

Spring 2009 - 'disheveled primitivism'. I still remember exactly how gorgeous Elise Crombiez looked wiggling down the catwalk in a rumpled pencil skirt. And I still regret not buying one of the backless sweaters with ties. Sigh.

Spring 2013 - Flowers! Japan! Future! We watched this on live feed from a studio in New York and still felt that visceral pull from thousands of miles away

I could go on.

Kirsty Dale – Executive Fashion Director

Well, my least favourite moment was realising on the way to my first ever Prada show last year (s/s 2013) that we were going the wrong way! In the end we had to jump out of the car and run full sprint along the streets of Milan to make it on time. Im pleased to say it was followed by my favourite Prada moment as the scene that greeted us completely blew me away. The vast murals on the walls and sheer scale, colour and spectacle of the show were something special to behold. I felt like I'd arrived at the end of one of the Prada coat rainbows.

Annabel Brog – Editorial Project Director

Brown, tweed, peep toe block heel shoes. My first PRADA purchase and still killing it 15 years later

Lisa Rahman – Deputy Art Director

Prada s/s 2012 - Gorgeous pastel coloured pleat skirts, flame stiletto shoes, dresses with tiny cartoon hot rod car prints all over, whilst the models walk down the runway to the sound of the occasional beeping car.

'Love Carey Mulligan. Love Prada. Love that when Carey Mulligan wore Prada to the Oscars in 2010, she ended up tearing off all the little kitchen utensils and giving them to people when she'd had some champagne.'

Molly Haylor – Fashion Assistant

Ending up in the Prada store four times having an argument with myself, trying to justify that it was ok to buy the metallic high heel shoes from the Prada a/w 2013 collection.

Gillian Brett – Editorial Assistant

If I could jump in a time machine Id go back to the1950s and wear flirty accordion-pleated skirts and little bandeau tops with my boyfriend¹s varsity jacket slung over my shoulders. For this reason and many, many more I loved the s/s 2012 collection. It is impossible not to feel happy looking at the playful automotive prints and juicy pastels. And the shoes, oh my God those shoes!
