He was known for his wide-shouldered designs and elegant tailoring, inspired by the glamor of the 1940s and 1950s.

Mugler’s designs were worn by stars like David Bowie and Lady Gaga. He created many stage outfits for Beyoncé and in 2019 he designed Kim Kardashian’s famous “wet dress” for the Met Gala.

In later years, his brand became famous for perfumes, such as Angel and Alien.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr. Manfred Thierry Mugler on Sunday, January 23, 2022,” confirmed a post on Mugler’s official Facebook account.

A post on his Instagram page described Mugler as “a visionary whose imagination… empowered people around the world to be bolder and dream bigger every day.”

His agent told the AFP news agency that he died of natural causes.

Born Manfred Thierry Mugler in 1948 in Strasbourg, France, he was a talented artist and by the age of 14 he was a dancer with the Ballet du Rhin. He was also an acrobat and a fashion model.

With an early interest in making his own clothes, Mugler opened his first boutique in Paris during the 1970s.

“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but fashion took off very quickly in Paris as soon as I showed my sketches,” he recently told Women’s Wear Daily.

Mugler became known for his theatrical designs that accentuated features such as the hips and shoulders, with plunging necklines and narrow waists.

His designs have been worn by the likes of David Bowie, George Michael, Sharon Stone and Rihanna. Mugler’s connection to Bowie was so strong that he dressed him for his and Iman’s wedding.

Mugler sold the rights to his name to Clarins in 1997, several years after launching his Angel perfume under the brand.

Said to have been a recluse, he seemed to withdraw from fashion in the early 2000s, choosing to create one-of-a-kind pieces for Lady Gaga and was the creative advisor on Beyoncé’s I AM… World Tour in 2010.

She honored the designer on her website with a montage of the many creations he made for her over the years.
