Famed fashion designer and perfumer, Thierry Mugler began crafting clothes at Parisian boutique, Gudule, at the age of 24. Two years later, he was working for some of the biggest ready-to-wear labels in Paris, Milan, London and Barcelona. Mugler opened his first boutique in Paris in 1978. His career skyrocketed, and his haute couture collections and fragrances are now celebrated worldwide. A second Parisian outpost followed nearly a decade later on Avenue Montaigne. Both boutiques have since shuttered, and Mugler now sells his fashions at Galeries Lafayette in Paris. From structured styles for men and feminine silhouettes for women, Mugler’s simple designs accentuate the human form.
