Designer Manfried Thierry Mugler, the founder of the brand Mugler, has died

Manfried’s personal Instagram account first reported the news.

“We are devastated to announce the passing of Mr Manfried Thierry Mugler on Sunday January 23 2022,” they wrote. “May his soul rest in peace.”

Mugler was an iconic designer who made an international name for himself in the 1980s and early 1990s. His creations have gone on to inspire generations of designers, and in his over the top theatrical shows, he was one of the first designers to consistently use out trans models on the runway.

Over the past decade there has been a renewed interest in Mugler designs which has materialized in not only retrospectives but celebrities wearing archival pieces. The house of Mugler is currently under the purview of creative director Casey Cadwallader. Cadwallader stepped into the role in 2018 but was preceeded by designers like David Koma and Nicolas Formichetti.
