BREAKING: Nicola Formichetti exits Mugler

Mission accomplished

Nicola Formichetti is leaving Mugler.

The super-stylist turned designer – who announced his arrival at the French fashion house for autumn/winter 2011 with a catwalk show starring close friend and collaborator Lady Gaga – is stepping down after just two years at the helm.

Said Joel Palix, president of Clarins Fragrance Group and director general of Mugler, in a statement: ‘Nicola has accomplished our original mission of bringing his energy to the brand. With his talent for communication and understanding of modern imagery and design, Nicola has been instrumental in attracting a new audience which is undeniably crucial for the future strategy of the house. He will be a historical part of the Mugler legacy and known as the force that catapulted us forward.’
