Thierry Mugler was born in Strasbourg, France in 1948. He made his first outfit for a girl friend at the age of 14. He joined a ballet company, the Opera du Rhin, then moved to Paris.
Thierry Mugler is an instinctive designer. His range of fragrances took inspiration from comic books, and outer space. His Angel perfume toppled Chanel No. 5 from it's number one slot in the french fragrance market in 1998, and his other fragrances such as A*Men & Alien have also had great success.
