Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti has announced his departure from the brand just two years after his debut collection. The designer tweeted "Big news to come!" on Monday, but little else has been offered on the subject of Formichetti’s apparently mutual decision with Mugler to end his time with them. Joel Palix, director general of Mugler, stated of Formichetti: "With his talent for communication and understanding modern imagery and design, Nicola has been instrumental in attracting a new audience which is undeniably crucial for the future strategy of the house. He will be a historical part of the Mugler legacy and known as the force that catapulted us forward." Indeed. Formichetti has generated a lot of publicity for Mugler during his time there – after all, he had Lady Gaga-as-Zombie Boy perform at a Mugler show! No word yet on who will replace Formichetti as Mugler’s creative director. [
