miuccia74940753.jpgNothing stays secret in fashion, too many badly treated assistants and low ranking staffers get drunk and talk (sometimes without even getting drunk at all). The latest news is that Miuccia Prada has an interesting set of office rules, as outlined in a leaked memo to The New York Post. According to the much loved and loathed gossip column in New York, the memo red something like this:

  • Desk and work surfaces should be clean and uncluttered. Pictures, calendars, etc. should not be taped to cubicle/office walls. Pets may not be brought to the corporate office or the store.
  • For corporate employees, all coats should be hung in the appropriate coatroom and not kept in offices or hung over cubicle walls.
  • Window shades should be even (either completely up or completely down) throughout one side of the floor.
  • Items may not be placed on the window sills ... In addition, it is important to take a break from your workday and enjoy your lunch. Therefore, absent extenuating circumstances, lunch may not be eaten at your desk.

And if you don't follow the rules? Well violators "may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment."

Is the devil really Prada?
