If Lady Gaga wants to continue her career in runway modeling, she will have to look elsewhere than Mugler. After two years as Mugler‘s creative director, Nicola Formichetti has decided to part ways with the French fashion house. In the statement, Mr. Formichetti said it was a challenge to “re-invigorate the house for a new generation and audience, particularly one that has grown up exploring fashion through the Internet.”

“Nicola has accomplished our original mission of bringing his energy to the brand. With his talent for communication and understanding of 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.” - said Joel Palix, director general of Mugler, in a statement.

WWD reports that the brand will unveil its future plan shortly - one that will build "on its highly successful legacy in fragrance and its new momentum in fashion".
