The London-based designer – who starts his new role in January – will unveil his first collection for the brand in June with pre, before making his catwalk debut in September during Paris Fashion Week.

“We want to write a new page for Mugler, putting it back on the map in the fashion business”

Koma replaces Nicola Formichetti, who left the French fashion house in April to join Diesel as artistic director. The designer’s arrival marks the first stage of rebranding for Mugler, with a renewed focus on women’s ready-to-wear.

“I am deeply honoured to take up the role of artistic director at Mugler – a house for which I have the utmost admiration and respect,” Koma said. “For me, Mugler is the most extraordinary fashion house with an undeniably audacious heritage.”
