Thierry Mugler - The World’s A stage, 7HollywoodMag - Fall 2013/14
For the last three decades Thierry Mugler, French visionaire, designer, photographer, and director has been a world force in the fashion industry. Long synonymous with the avant garde, his distinct melding of futurism and fantasy reverberates amongst young designers today.
Mugler’s distinct aesthetic has influenced many. Lady Gaga is a #1 fan, Madonna an admirer, Beyonce commissioned him for her stage costumes and singer George Michael for the iconic Too Funky music video. He created a revolution in the perfume world with Angel, a top seller since 1992.
Still, Mugler isn’t content claiming former glories, a huge enthusiast of musicals and cabaret, he is set to produce his very first cabaret musical production, Mugler Folles at Le Comedia in Paris, with a premier scheduled for December 10, 2013. A blend of erotic fantasy and comic book hero, Mugler Follies features three characters, La Mulglerette, Kraffit and Kress, whose aesthetic is typical of the iconic designer.
For the future Mugler’s extravagant directorial vision might be realized in North America’s cabaret capital Las Vegas. More information at http://www.muglerfollies.com
