Mugler-Inspired Costumes: Part Two

Just in time for Halloween, we’re sharing Part Two of our Mugler-Inspired Costumes! As we learned in our previous post, Thierry Mugler used his runway to play out exotic fashion fantasies – everything from insects to angels, robots to rhinestone cowgirls appeared in his whimsical presentations. You’ll notice that unlike today’s fashion shows, these presentations were full of movement; rather than disappearing behind the clothing, Mugler’s models act out his elaborate stories with emotion. Dancing, running, marching, flirting, and even bobsledding (see below!) were not unusual in Mugler’s world.  

We hope you find the perfect costume for your own personal catwalk on Halloween!
