This sensational butterfly-wings insect novelty print silk dress from his 1997 spring-summer couture collection is a perfect example of Thierry Mugler's genius. He is known for bold fashion and edgy, sometimes even campy, theatricality. In the 1980's, he was famous for staging dramatic choreographed fashion shows and experimenting with unusual materials. Thierry Mugler added a touch of Kafka’s 'Metamorphosis' to his approach for this collection. Before the butterfly finale, all manner of winged and hard-shelled creatures made appearances! Not only is this little number very alluring; it is so versatile and timeless. The bodice is a seductive one-shoulder asymmetric design. I adore the tiered ruffle avant-garde hemline. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to look and feel fabulous.
