Who is Thierry Mugler?

In brief, he is a French fashion designer hand has many success in fashion design, costume design, perfumes and beauty products.

Thierry Mugler was born in the lovely Strasbourg, France in 1948, by the way, one of my favorite cities in France. He moved to Paris to pursue his fashion design career at the age of 24. In 1978, he opened his very first clothing shop in Paris. As a creative artist, he also has interests in photography, films, and perfumery.

His achievement includes a collaboration with Cirque de Soleil in 2002, and Beyoncé, her 2009 “I Am…World Tour”. His Thierry Mugler Beauty brand was launched in 2008. From what I can find right now, there are mostly perfumes to be found, such as at Sephora. To name a few, the very first one was the star-shaped bottle of Angel (1992), later Angel Men was born, and in 2005 there was Alien, 2010 Womanity, and 2015 Angel Muse.

The exhibition at Montreal museum showcases some collections of his fashion and costume design work, along with Montreal Couture, which features Montreal’s local fashion designers’ works. What I truly appreciate during this visit was that bold and creative energy he showed. I know that successful fashion designers or artists usually bring out the so-call-crazy creativity at those fashion-forward event like those Fashion Show Week in Paris or in New York. This one is no exception.

The exhibition is on till September 8th, 2019. Montrealers and someone who plans to visit Montreal in the near future, it’s a short but impressive visit. For a short video I made, please visit my Instagram post.
