2022 has started off on a rather sad note for the fashion community. On top of the recent deaths of Virgil Abloh and André Leon Talley, Thierry Mugler, French fashion designer and founder of one of the most famous fashion companies of the 21st century, passed away on Sunday, January 23rd. Mugler’s designs could be described as avant-garde, awe-inspiring, theatrical, and somewhat futuristic in nature. He styled many celebrities, including Cardi B, Megan Fox, and most famously, Kim Kardashian. Kim has even said that as soon as she found out that the theme for the 2019 Met Gala was camp, she turned to Mr. Mugler. Mugler also made his mark on the perfume industry–in fact, his first perfume “Angel” was a best seller across the globe. Today, I want to use this article to show some of my personal favorite Mugler designs in an attempt to honor his incredible legacy. One thing remains clear: even after Mugler’s passing, his designs will continue to impact the fashion world for centuries to come.
