Psst... Does Thierry Mugler have his eye on Gareth Pugh?
Now here is something to mull over as we enter the weekend. After rumours that he may take over the reins at Alexander McQueen were squashed, we are now hearing whispers that Gareth Pugh may be heading for Thierry Mugler.
According to WWD, the British designer has been in talks with the Paris-based fashion house, but for exactly what role is unknown. Word is that Mugler is looking to begin a new fashion direction and has approached several candidates.
The collaboration makes some sense. Both Mugler and Pugh were vying to dress Beyonce for her Sasha Fierce album cover and subsequent tour wardrobe. In the end, the job went to the Mugler but that hasn't stopped the diva from regularly wearing Pugh's designs. So, could Beyonce be the common factor that ties these two together?
