Mugler, who launched his brand in 1973, became known for his architectural style, defined by broad shoulders and a slim waist. The use of futuristic plastic-like fabrics in his sculpted garments has become a trademark.

He defined haute couture for several decades, dressing Diana Ross and Beyonce at galas, on red carpets and on the catwalk.

His designs did not shy away from being extravagant, sometimes resembling robotic suits with protruding conical shapes. Mugler also had a popular fragrance line, which he launched in the 1990s.

The fashion world was filled with a surge of sympathy. Bella Hadid, an American model, said “Nonononono”, followed by an image of a sad face, while American actress January Jones responded with a heart mark, from their official Instagram accounts.

Apart from clothing, Mugler created films and photographs, and was an avid dancer, acrobat as well as bodybuilder, emphasizing that he always wanted to explore the human body as art.
