Thierry Mugler is born in Strasbourg, France. As he grows up, he learns that he loves drawing and dancing. His passion? To create another world, one that is his own.

At 20 years old, he leaves his hometown to go to Paris. There, he starts designing for fashion boutiques, then goes on to work with major fashion houses in Paris, London and Barcelona.

1973

Mugler creates his first collection called Café de Paris, where he showcases an urban, sexy style.

1978

He becomes Designer of the Year, voted for by both the press and public.

1980s

Mugler’s fashion shows are inspired by ultra-femininity – think extravagant dresses, diva outfits, fairy-like designs and structured bustiers. Dreamy!

Thierry Mugler launches perfume number one – Angel for her. Its gourmand, captivating notes make it revolutionary in the fragrance world. This is not just a perfume – this is a creamy, vanilla, caramel, honey and praline perfume. It’s now a classic and we can’t get enough of it. The world goes crazy for Angel.

1996

A*Men for him is here and all we can say is… amen! It smells of chocolate, caramel and vanilla, so now men can get in on the gourmand scents.

2005

Hello, Alien! Thierry Mugler extends his out-of-this-world perfume collection with the introduction of Alien for her – a lighter blend of jasmine, cashmeran wood and white amber. Lush!

2015

Mugler’s AW15 collection is just as we’d come to expect: black panel dresses with sexy backs and galactic silver and gold patterns.

 2016

Angel Muse launches and it smells just like our brunch goals. We’re obsessed with the notes of hazelnut cream cocoa and red berries. Can we have a waffle with that, too? Dreamy.

The SS17 catwalk show is bold, shiny and VERY Mugler. The colour palette is silver, black, white, blue and orange, and the clothes, which include sporty zip pieces, are fitted like wetsuits. Very futuristic!
