Mugler was the designer who started using stars to run his shows. The Frenchman retired as a designer in 2002 and said: “Fashion is beautiful, it’s 3D art on a person. But it wasn’t enough, which is why I want to create in other ways.”
Perfumes and costumes
Mugler went on to work as a director on the Cirque du Soleil show Zumanity, for which he also designed the costumes. For Beyoncé in 2009, he started working as an artistic consultant and also designed the clothing. He also made perfumes.
