Last month, the infamous Gaga stylist, turned Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti stopped by The Room at The Bay to show off the brand’s Spring 2012 collection, talk shop, and party with Toronto’s fashion obsessed. As someone who’s pretty shy around famous folks, I just wanted to snap a quick shot of Formichetti for the site, but he refused to go it alone, so Kim and I obliged, and jumped in for a pic.
With an impressive list of fashion accomplishments (and controversies) to add to his resume, Formichetti was not at all intimidating or snooty…but rather gracious, excitable, and curious, making some attendees literally squeal with delight (it wasn’t me, I swear!).
The collection, designed by Sébastien Peigné, who was also in attendance, was not as extreme as anything Gaga would wear, but the hint of “monster” sensibility was certainly present, if only made more wearable for the general public (if you’re one of those people who consider 9-inch heels wearable, that is).
If you’d like to see the pieces up close and personal, stop by The Room, and see the collection for yourself, or check out more photos from the event on our Facebook page.
