THE DESIGNER

Thierry Mugler (1948-2022) was an influential fashion designer celebrated  as a transformative force in the world of (fashion) design for his avant-garde and theatrical praxis. With 200+ Fashion Fetish Fantasy

Moving to Paris at 24, Mugler worked initially as a freelance designer. In 1976, he founded his eponymous label, initially focusing on women's fashion and later expanding into menswear.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Mugler emerged as a trailblazer, revolutionizing the fashion industry through his highly theatrical shows and visionary designs. Padded hips, sculptural silhouettes, and elaborate displays featuring bodybuilders and GoGo dancers became hallmarks of his brand. His designs were not merely clothing; they transformed into immersive experiences, transporting audiences into extraordinary parallel universes.

Mugler drew inspiration from an eclectic array of sources, including insects, birds, film noir characters, and power suits. His 1997 runway, inspired by insects, showcased extravagant silhouettes, standing out as one of his most iconic collections.

Challenging conventional notions of femininity, Mugler believed that power could coexist with beauty. He sought to empower women, allowing them to dress elegantly, playfully, and provocatively while maintaining intelligence and respectability. His legacy includes popularizing the concept of lingerie as outerwear, a trend evident in contemporary fashion.

In 2003, Mugler temporarily withdrew from the public eye, returning in 2009 transformed physically and adopting the name "Manfred." This reimagining coincided with designing costumes for Cirque du Soleil's "Zumanity," catching the attention of artists like Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.
