An iconic and highly coveted Thierry Mugler couture metallic gold lamé and fishnet hourglass gown dating back to his documented 1985 spring/summer collection. Garments from this show are next to impossible to find. 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 seductive metallic gold gown is a perfect example of his genius. Not only is this number unforgettable; it is true wearable art. I love the skilled nipped-waist bodice with little cap sleeves. Patterned overlay of fishnet almost creates a stunning web effect that flows into lean long sleeves. The ultra-high front slit creates even more drama and sex appeal. The hourglass cut really has that nod to Old Hollywood glamour days that you see in his best pieces.
This 1985 Thierry Mugler spring/summer documented designer gown is in beautiful condition. Closes with back zipper. The level of work in this piece would only be found in the highest couture of today. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value. A truly breathtaking Thierry Mugler gown.
