Iconic fashion designer Manfred Thierry Mugler passed away. The cause of death is not known, but the message was confirmed on his official Instagram account.

Mugler started his career in the 70s, celebrating tiny waist, wide hips, and broad shoulders with architecturally detailed pieces.

During the span of several decades, Mugler worked with numerous celebrities, from Diana Ross to Madonna, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, and Beyonce.

His perfume Angel, which was launched in the early '90s, is one of the bestselling in the world. Jerry Hall, the face of the fragrance, told in 2019 that Mugler is timeless and ahead of time.

She explained to New York Times:

"He knew all about gender fluidity, and his clothes reflected the heat and sexuality of the late 70s and early 80s."

The exhibit about his work Thierry Mugler: Couturissime started in 2019 in Montreal and returned to Paris in 2021.

Mugler was more than a fashion designer, as he was a talented photographer, ballet dancer, acrobat, and bodybuilder.

Speaking to Interview Magazine, he said:

"I've always felt like a director, and the clothes I did were a direction of every day."

Celebrities are pouring tributes, as well as fans from across the world.

Mugler's designs were celebrated in the music world, including the video for Too Funky:
