A Thierry Mugler dress, circa 1988

Price £2,875.00

information

This spectacular dress, in palest pink silk, is a superb and rare example of a Thierry Mugler ballgown. The dress is dynamically designed to enhance the bust and waist and create an ‘Old Hollywood’ style silhouette yet remaining resolutely modern with all the iconic Mugler detailing. The deeply plunging V-neckline, the ‘kick outs’ to the halterneck and the secondary panels to the waist line all trick the eye and create a sinuous, exaggerated form that leads into a full ballgown skirt of epic proportions.

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.

Sizing & Condition

SIZE & FIT:The dress is in fair condition with the original Thierry Mugler label upon the original lining. The skirt of the dress has a gentle colour-fade from the hem upwards, not immediately noticeable due to the sheen of the silk and the large scale of the skirt and its train. The underside of the skirt, designed to drag along the floor, has numerous marked areas from previous wear however these are not visible when the dress is worn and are to be expected. There is one abrasion within the silk, located at the left-hand hip and the dress is photographed with its original tulle underskirt, supplied with the dress. Each item discovered by WilliamVintage is professionally dry-cleaned, ozone-treated and inspected by a couture-trained seamstress before being sold. As all vintage items have been previously worn, gentle signs of wear are an inherent part of the piece however all pieces sold online adhere to the strict WilliamVintage criteria for condition.
