following to say about the experience:                                                  Distributed by       Prada

                                                                                        Language             English
       people on set and just have fun.

       The chance to dwell on what the fashion world represents nowadays and the fact that it is accompanied by so
       many stereotypes is fascinating and at the same time a bit upsetting, but you definitely can not ignore it.

       It's very refreshing to know that there are still places open to irony and wit and, for sure, Prada is one of
       them." [2]
