Mugler To Stage First Runway Since 2020 in Paris This Month
At the French capital’s La Villette on January 26.
After releasing a series of high-caliber fashion films during the pandemic era, Mugler creative director Casey Cadwallader has big plans to take the French fashion house back to the Paris runway on January 26, according to WWD. That day, the label will take over Paris’ cultural complex La Villette at 8 p.m. CET, with a see-now, buy-now Fall 2022/2023 collection.
The runway will take place at the closing of Paris’ couture week, which is scheduled for January 23 to 26. Though the week is primarily reserved for haute couture, there are typically a few ready-to-wear unveilings at the beginning and end of the calendar.
Mugler has not disclosed details on the show, though the brand has confirmed that it will be a “new concept” and it will provide an “immersive experience across all channels,” per the outlet. The event will mark the first time that Mugler has shown a collection in January. Notably, the brand has not staged a live runway show since Fall 2020.
Under COVID restrictions, Mugler became known for its big-budget films, which oftentimes cast top-shelf talent, including Megan Thee Stallion, Chloë Sevigny and Hunter Schafer, and earned millions of views across channels. The brand, which normally releases two collections each year, has plans to return to the standard ready-to-wear fashion week calendar with evolved live shows in the fall.
