Breaking: David Koma succeeds Nicola Formichetti at Thierry Mugler

Our beloved David Koma is taking a major step forward today, as the new artistic director for Thierry Mugler’s women’s ready-to-wear line. We say “our beloved” as David is of course a member of the London Fashion Week set. His shows have been the highlight of the season for a few years now and every single person in attendance knew we were watching the beginning of something substantial. And here we have the first big step forward, besides the tremendous success of his own line of course.

You may remember Nicola Formichetti was the last artistic director at Mugler. He announced last April he would be leaving and taking on a new role at Diesel. So it’s been quite a few months now that we’ve been left in the dark as to what the next move would be for the brand. However, on January 2nd, Koma moves in.

David Koma will begin with his for collection for Resort in June 2014. Then in September we’ll see his first runway collection during Paris Fashion Week. Big things to come, people, big things! {WWD}
