A stunning visual journey of the enduring legacy of fashion and couture icon Manfred Thierry Mugler
Since launching his first fashion collection in 1973, Manfred Thierry Mugler has been celebrated for his fierce creative vision. Drawing inspiration from everything from architecture and theatre to Old Hollywood and futurism, Mugler not only designs his collections, but also stages his own shows, directs the advertising campaigns, and photographs his fantastical creations. Including both iconic and never-before-published images, this book is illustrated with more than 150 photographs from his captivating personal collection and includes a travel journal-inspired text that follows Mugler around the world on his shoots, offering a behind-the-scenes look at how the images came to be. Proving that Mugler's vision is best captured by his own extraordinary images, Manfred Thierry Mugler Photographer is a vibrant visual journey through the work of a singular talent.
“Featuring iconic and unseen photographs captured by Mugler himself, the tome reads like a travel journal across a universe that mediates between Star Wars and Space Jam.”— Interview Magazine
