nicola formichetti confirmed thierry mugler.jpgSo it is true! Nicola Formichetti will join Thierry Mugler as the label's new creative director of women's and men's divisions. Already the mind boggles over just what creations the partnership will produce.

Speaking of his new role, Formichetti said: "Thierry Mugler is about the power of glamour and walking straight into the future. He's been a god for successive generations in the fashion industry. He fused pop and high fashion, told a story in style and combined fantasy with reality. My approach is personal and always very eclectic. I'd like to find new ways for a luxury brand such as Thierry Mugler to excite people."

As well as being Lady Gaga's stylist, Formichetti is also an editor, consultant and art director for Vogue Hommes Japan. He replaces Rosemary Rodriguez, who exited the label two years ago.
