Iconic Fall Winter 1990-91 Thierry Mugler documented "Kessler" runway gown in the most flattering high to low waterfall 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 pink silk-satin dress is a perfect example of his genius. Not only is this number unforgettable; it is true wearable art. I love the winged puff-sleeve plunging with matching wide hourglass belt. The nipped waist flows into a unique sculpted waterfall hemline, with seductive coordinating hot pants. The best part of all is this ensemble has never been worn and still have the original price tags. A true piece of wearable fashion history.
