Thierry Mugler Black Velvet Dress, Circa 1987

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An incredible example of Thierry Mugler’s sculptural designs, this black velvet gown sits off the shoulder with a silver lurex trim over the bust. The corseted bust adds support, while the velvet fabric skims the body seductively, falling into a train at the back. A perfect choice for a red carpet event, this gown screams glamour!

Thierry Mugler first started designing clothes in London in the late 1960s before returning to Paris. His designs became the benchmark for the new ‘Power Dressing’ of the late 1980s and 1990s and his focus on darted waists, pronounced shoulder lines and a heavily sculptural feel became the expression of the decade.
