Almost two months after Virgil Abloh, another fashion monument is leaving us: Thierry Mugler.
The French fashion designer, whose real name is Manfred Thierry Mugler, died at the age of 73 on Monday. Although he hasn't been on the fashion scene since 2002, he has continued to dress big names for various events.
We therefore invite you to come back to his recent iconic moments and also to his collaboration with Melissa.
Beyoncé in Thierry Mugler for her concert at Madison Square Garde New York in 2009
Dressed in her body marking her wasp waist, flamboyant Beyoncé represented "the duality between the woman and the warrior". In the singer's “I am… Sasha Fierce” tour, Thierry Mugler is the one who will be the author of all the outfits.
Kim Kardashian in Thierry Mugler for the Met Gala in 2019
To dress the star, the designer once again highlighted his muse's waist with an extremely tight corset giving her a surreal look. His inspiration is in particular a Californian girl who would come out of the water like a mermaid. Extraordinary details after 8 months of work!

In recent years, we have seen Carbi B sporting Thierry Mugler's archive pieces. The rapper is indeed a fervent admirer of the creator, having ideal curves to highlight the creations of this one. This dress, for example, was made for the ready-to-wear fall-winter 1995-96 fashion show and can be found in the Thierry Mugler: Couturissime exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, among others.
In short, it is difficult to summarize all the works of Thierry Mugler. Marked by sexy and extravagant lines, the designer has been able to artistically highlight the curves of many stars since the 80s. His fashion shows were marked by original pieces that told stories at the crossroads of science fiction and surrealism, far from following trends and references to fashion history: her desire was to highlight the power of femininity.
It is these aspects of his creativity in particular that Mugler highlighted in his collaboration with Melissa in 1985 with the ballerina Apollo.
Throughout his life, Thierry Mugler knew how to share his world with us, his dose of surrealism and extravagance.
