An iconic and totally timeless Thierry Mugler couture fall winter 1999-2000 black bustier hourglass tuxedo gown with original store tags still attached. 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 ultra chic hourglass gown is a perfect example of his genius. I love the sophisticated tuxedo style collar which flows into a low-cut plunge bustier design. The interior boned corset is a statement piece in it's own right. The sculpted side pockets mirror menswear yet the draped fitted column trained skirting with front slit really has that nod to Old Hollywood glamour days that you see in his best pieces. A gorgeous slice of wearable fashion history from such a celebrated designer. The pictures say it all.
