Born in Strasbourg on 21 December 1948, Mugler has lived art and creativity since he was a child. In addition to dance, as a young man he suffered the fascination of interior design.

And, in his spare time, like anyone chasing a dream, he designed clothes, followed art courses, researched his own style.

Through photography and fashion, he succeeded, but let’s not forget that he was also the creator – and the “nose” – of one of the most loved perfumes ever, best-selling in the history of fragrances: Alien.
