"Couture by Thierry Mugler is both art and science. His cuts captivate while creating a stir. His silhouettes are distinct and instantly recognisable: anatomical, graphic, ultra-feminine and meticulous. The materials go hand in hand with movement, and peaks of fabric create new lines of strength to best showcase women, beautify them, mould to their bodies and reshape them as they desire. Close-fitting suits, rhinestone sheath dresses, structured bustiers, extravagant dresses and whimsical pieces each reveal conquering icons, extravagant divas, glamorous fairy-like stars and victorious sun goddesses. Contemporary heroines who summon dreams, fantasy, metamorphosis, conquest, the future and the extraordinary at fashion shows - events that are larger than life yet perfected to the detail. With clothes on her mind, the Mugler woman makes her presence known. "
