Thierry Mugler was born in 1948, in Strasbourg, France. Mugler studied design before moving to Paris in 1970, where he worked as a window-dresser. Mugler was a visionary, he was one of the highly energetic and creative people. He trained as a ballet dancer in his youth, made his name with futuristic and mind boggling couture designs with his fashion label and gave the world a new definition of “women”. Mugler’s women were confident, sexy with attitude, powerful and futuristic. It all showed in his iconic details in his work. He created a very identifiable style with a new feminine silhoutte where shapes and curves are accentuated by the strictness of the cut. Mugler produced a very clear-cut, precise and structured image with a shouldered, slender cut for a classic silhouette.
In 1992, Thierry Mugler created his first Haute Couture collection. His work had gained him the recognition of the big influence of the French luxury which were promoted worldwide and internationally.
Thierry Mugler’s latest fragrance WOMANITY shows how powerful are the Mugler’s women. Thierry Mugler is now known best for its perfume division. The couture division was closed in 2003, and all Thierry Mugler ready-to-wear is now produced under license agreements, as is a line of eyewear.
