On the podium of the golden age of the 80s in addition to Claude Montana , Azzedine Alaïa and Jean-Paul Gaultier , one of the designers who redefined the history of fashion is Thierry Mugler . And if revolutionary is a term that must be well dosed, for the designer from Strasbourg it is the perfect adjective to use. His style became famous for his cultural research and inspiration: from American cars of the seventies, to film noir up to the world of insects. Eccentric and creative, he transformed women into timeless goddesses, with opulent and creative outfits inspired by fantastic creatures and impossible universes.

Thierry Mugler for the Couture Spring 1997 collection brings to the stage a fashion show inspired by insects. The clothes have a defined body conscious structure, with theatrical exaggerations. Fly sunglasses, beetle corsets and antennae. The parade closure look is a corset designed on the silhouette of a butterfly.
“I have always tried to sublimate the body and allow people to dream” in fact, the work on the woman's body was also revolutionary for the use of new shapes and materials, metal corsets with a shower of crystals, plexiglass and acetate.
Among Mugler's most famous creations we also remember the corsets worn by Madonna during concerts, and the super sexy dresses by Sharon Stone.
