Iconic Designer: Thierry Mugler

Now that we are well into the 2010s, it’s more than safe to say that the 1980s are vintage, and key designers like Thierry Mugler are collectible. The French native began designing clothes for a Parisian boutique in his mid-twenties and went on to work for ready-to-wear houses throughout Europe. In the 1970s he struck out on his own and during the 1980s and 1990s he became internationally successful for his precise and structured styles.

He famously designed the black dress worn by Demi Moore in Indecent Proposal and went on to create wildly successful fragrances, books and short films. Mugler has collaborated on costumes for artists such as Beyonce and Dita Von Teese. In 2010, Nicola Formichetti was announced as the new creative director of Thierry Mugler.
