designer: Thierry Muglerabout

In 1973 Mugler created his first personal collection called "Caf de Paris". The style of the collection was both sophisticated and urban. Melka Tranton, a powerful fashion editor, helped launched his career. In 1976, she asked him to show his work in Tokyo, for an event organized byShiseido.In 1978 he opened his first Paris boutique at the place des Victoires (in the 1st arrondissement). At the same time, Thierry Mugler launched a fashion collection for men. For this collection, he reworked classical masculinity giving it a definitively modern style. A clean, precise, structured cut which outlined a highly-recognizable silhouette: prominent shoulders, both "anatomical and classic", for a dynamic and slender look.
