NEW EXHIBITION: THIERRY MUGLER - CREATURES OF HAUTE COUTURE



An upcoming new exhibition at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is to showcase over 130 of Thierry Mugler’s most iconic designs, many of which will be seen in public for the first time, presented alongside work by famed photographers and archive materials.

“I have always been fascinated by the most beautiful animal on the Earth: the human being,” the designer said in a statement. “I have used all of the tools at my disposal to sublimate this creature: fashion, shows, perfumes, photography, video… I am not a person who dwells in the past, but the MMFA, through Nathalie Bondil, was the first to propose me to stage my creations and imagine together a free, global and reinvented artistic vision. How could I refuse?”




Bondil, the 
Director General and Chief Curator of the MMFA, commented, “Metamorphoses, super-heroines and cyborgs are already present in Mugler’s work. His streamlined and elegant creatures, and dangerous and alluring women, people a universe of glamour and seduction at the frontiers of reality.”

Thierry Mugler – Creatures of Haute Couture will open in February 2019.
