“Femininity is an aesthetic that makes the body sublime. What I look at first in a woman is the way she holds her head, her waist, shoulders” –Thierry Mugler
Trying to keep up with the latest trends and upcoming designers is important in order to understand the fashion industry, but knowing how fashion has evolved and changed throughout the years is crucial. After learning about different pre-21st Century fashion designers, one can only appreciate how they’ve changed and influenced the industry today.
Thierry Mugler is one of those influencers who have managed to step outside of the norm and follow his own vision. Inspired by strong, powerful women and the movement and artistic expression of the theater, Mugler has managed to recreate beautiful garments embodying and emphasizing women’s curves using bizarre materials and fabrics. Mugler’s obsession with movement and shape is celebrated through structured silhouettes and tailored suits with his anatomical cuts. A design that shapes and highlights the elegance of a woman without ignoring the shameless sex appeal. Thanks to many designers, such as Mugler, women can feel confidant in their own skin and designers can follow their imagination.
