Thierry Mugler more than a creative mind

Mugler was born in Strasbourg in December 1948. At the age of 14 he was accepted into the ballet corps of the Opéra du Rhin and then attended the Kunstgewerbeschule in the Alsatian capital. At that time he tailored his first designs from clothes from the flea market.

Mugler was also a pioneer in staging large-scale fashion shows in front of thousands of spectators. Mugler controlled everything from the props to the soundtrack. Later he started creating perfume. His first perfume for women, “Angel”, launched in 1992, was a great success and even challenged Chanel’s legendary N°5 for first place in the sales charts. In 1997, the cosmetics group Clarins took over the trademark rights.

At the age of 20 he came to Paris and worked for various fashion houses in Paris, London and Milan. In 1973 he founded his own label “Café de Paris” before founding the company “Thierry Mugler” a year later. In 2002, Mugler retired from the fashion world.

Mugler also made his transformation in his own body by engaging in intense bodybuilding and undergoing numerous cosmetic surgeries. At the same time he devoted himself to meditation and yoga and from then on called himself “Manfred T. Mugler”.

In 2013, Mugler shook up the cabaret scene in Paris and Berlin with his own musical shows. The stars of the eccentric shows were dancers, ventriloquists, singers and acrobats. Mugler was also a writer. There is currently a large exhibition on his fashion productions in Paris. ( afp/ml)
