Spectacular and compelling. Thierry Mugler – prominent artist, visionary, fashion designer, photographer and perfumer. The exhibition shows works from his ready-to-wear and haute couture collections. And contemporary fashion photographers such as Guy Bourdin, David LaChapelle and Helmut Newton complement the exhibition.
The exhibition brings together more than 150 outfits. Most of which are exhibited for the first time. In addition, accessories, stage costumes and clips / videos have never been shown before. The Kunsthal Rotterdam is the first location in Europe where this retrospective exhibition is being shown.
‘Thierry Mugler: Couturissime’ follows the career of this exceptional creative spirit that brings about a revolution in fashion with its futuristic style and glamorous and elegant silhouettes: sleek lines, superhero shoulders and constricted waistlines for dressing a sublime, sensual and powerful woman who undergoes a continuous metamorphosis. Thierry Mugler is also responsible for some of the most spectacular fashion shows of his time. He also dresses a whole range of stars such as Diana Ross, David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Liza Minnelli, Diane Dufresne and Céline Dion. He also designs costumes for the tours and videos of Mylène Farmer and Beyoncé.
