The career of Manfred Thierry Mugler is the modern fable of a young man originally from Strasbourg, who in 1970 decided to move to Paris.
In the French capital he worked as a window dresser and in his free time he designed his unmistakable creations, which already bore the imprint of what was to become his “trademark”: dresses-corset with a “waspish” waist and hyper-feminine style.
The first collection – Café de Paris in 1973 – is a tribute to the city that adopted him, and that will make him one of the greatest contemporary designers.
He reinvented the image of women in a thousand different ways: cyber warrior, rebel cowgirl, contemporary pin-up.
We remember the French designer in five memorable moments of his career that have consecrated him as a visionary creator of Pop costume and fashion of the future.
