A totally iconic and highly coveted Thierry Mugler couture black silk asymmetric sheer cut-out hourglass gown dating back to his documented 1998 fall/winter runway collection. Garments from this show are very collectable and incredible hard 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 black gown, complete with long sheer gloves, is a perfect example of his genius. Not only is this look unforgettable; it is true wearable art. I love the skilled asymmetry with clever double layer over the breast and bra-like strap. The one sided sheer cut-out dips low below the waist, hitting at the hipline. The ultra-high side slit creates even more drama and sex appeal. The hourglass silhouette really has that nod to Old Hollywood glamour days that you see in his best pieces.
