Remembering a visionary

On Sunday night, the unfortunate passing of the creative mind, Thierry Mugler, became apparent to the public with a post from his official Facebook page. Passing of natural causes at 73, a legend has left us.

Born on the 21st of December 1948, the French designer launched his fashion house in the 70s. He gained attention for his theatrical take on haute couture that some say was on par with Schiaparelli.

Always breaking boundaries, he was one of the first designers to hold the beacon on diversity.

His catwalks, which often symbolized issues on racism and other societal issues, included non-traditional models from so many walks of life. Women of color, transgender women, pornstars and so many more.

Known for his outrageously ground-breaking designs, Mugler led a life of much success. His impact on the fashion world is second to none. He may not be a select designer that springs to the average person’s mind, but his talent spoke for itself. A designer unlike any other.

He gave us not only iconic and gorgeous designs but luxurious fragrances that equally deserve appreciation. With scents as outlandish as his fashion; He was a voguish man.

Notably, he worked with many high-profile celebs like David Bowie, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, George Michael, and Cardi B, gaining him notoriety not only in the fashion world but also in the mainstream media.

According to Teen Vogue, Mugler had become one of the most coveted luxury vintage brands amongst Gen Z consumers.
