Thierry Mugler one of the most innovative and acclaimed fashion houses of the 80s and 90s has tapped Nicola Formichetti, the fashion director of Vogue Hommes Japan and the man responsible for dressing Lady Gaga in a meat dress, to be the creative director of women's and men's wear at the Clarins-owned label. According to the report in WWD: "Sébastien Peigné, a 10-year veteran of Balenciaga and head of the studio since 2006, has been named head designer of women’s under Formichetti, while Romain Kremer, 28, who has shown experimental looks for men under his fledgling Paris label since 2005, will be head designer of men’s."
