For over 20 years, Thierry Mugler has stretched the boundaries of style and imagination. His sense of fashion and chameleonic ability to thrill and surprise have led him to be named one of the world's most innovative designers. Adventurous and provocative, he is forever on a quest to reinvent the classic, to break down preconceptions. Thierry Mugler: Fashion, Fetish, Fantasy is a celebration of his extraordinary vision. Combining Mugler's own sketches with images from some of the world's top photographers, the book is an unforgettable look at an astonishing career. Mugler's fashion shows are legendary, and nearly every supermodel (Jerry Hall, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, Kate Moss) and many other celebrated personalities (David Bowie, Julie Newmar, Ivana Trump, Sharon Stone, James Brown, Diana Ross) have graced the stage in his brilliant world, and images of many are featured in this book. The diversity of his talents is impressive (women's and men's fashion; accessories; fragrances; worldwide boutiques in cities including Paris, London, Hamburg, and Istanbul) and the range of his projects is startling (from Macbeth to the 1992 music video for George Michael's "Too Funky" to the first VH1 Fashion and Music Awards). This compendium of influential, often wild work from a successful contemporary artist is fascinating and indispensable for art lovers and anyone with an eye for high fashion.
