"We Own Our Body"

Zaya Wade continues to make strides in fashion. The teen recently partnered with Miuccia Prada to promote Miu Miu in Paris.


The brand, which is considered the younger version of Miuccia Prada’s designs, presented its Spring 2023 collection. There appeared to be a focus on taking what would ordinarily be viewed as “normal” and styling the pieces in a manner that makes them stand out.

Miuccia Prada recently delved into the mission behind creating Miu Miu. “It is a playground, because it was smaller, so it was more free,” the designer revealed to Harper’s Baazar. “Prada is the most serious part of myself,” the fashion creator added.

Like Zaya, Miuccia Prada also believes in individuals having full control of themselves. It was Prada, after all, that debuted the mini skirt in the 1960s, which was viewed as a revolutionary act. “It was saying, ‘We own our body. We do what we want. We don’t want to be constricted,'” Miuccia shared with the press. “So the nakedness back then became the idea of freedom and protest,” Prada said.

“You can invent a new way of being beautiful or sexy,” Miuccia Prada told Harper’s Baazar. “Not going with the cliché of it, but inventing your own way and deciding what you want to wear according to your [own] thoughts,” the fashion designer shared.

Miu Miu sent Zaya a welcome package, which included pieces from their forthcoming collection. “Welcome to Paris and thanks for joining us for this session,” Miu Miu wrote to Zaya in a welcome note. “Wishing you a wonderful stay and see you at the show,” the brand added.

Zaya is Dwyane Wade’s child with his first wife, Siohvaughn Funches. The retired NBA player also has an older child named Zaire with his ex-wife. Dwyane has a younger daughter named Kaavia James with his wife, Gabrielle Union. The celebrity father’s youngest son, Xavier, whom he shares with Aja Metoyer.
