Iconic Fall Winter 1988-89 Thierry Mugler documented runway dress in the most flattering hourglass shape. This legendary French fashion designer is known for bold fashion and edgy, sometimes even campy, theatricality. Though Mugler stopped designing his couture and ready-to-wear lines in 2003 to focus on photography and costume design, his work has a lasting legacy. This breathtaking black velvet and sheer silk illusion dress is a perfect example of his genius. Not only is this number unforgettable; it is true wearable art. I love the skilled lightning bolt novelty with lean, long cuffed sleeves. The nipped waist seamlessly flows into a figure flattering wiggle skirt. A true piece of wearable fashion history.
