Thierry Mugler quotes
French - Designer
Born: 21 Dec 1948
I want my models to be bigger, stronger and taller than common mortals. I need superwomen and supermen.
I have always tried to sublimate the body and to make people dream.
I realised I was living in my own universe with lots of assistants. I didn't have a cell phone; I didn't know how to use a computer. Everybody was doing everything for me. So I left and moved to New York. It was the end of an era, and I must say I found myself a bit lost. I wasn't in the protected Mugler universe any more.
You're working with models who are looking at their watch, and it didn't work for me. I wanted to have relationships with amazing people.
I survived on sandwiches, and I was on stage every night for six years of my life. I was working 16 hours a day between class, rehearsal, being on stage.
I used fashion to express myself as much as I could. But at some point, it was not enough.
The reason I quit fashion was that I had had enough of spending my time always being on my knees, making other people look amazing and fabulous.
Hindu sages say that you should concentrate while eating. But, we don't have time anymore. Fast food is not quick enough for me. I would like super-fast food in the form of pills.
The potential of your body is endless.
I am not trendy. I am not 'in fashion.' I am simply a positive human being who has a positive outlook on life.
