David Koma appointed creative director at Thierry Mugler

Paris fashion house Thierry Mugler has today announced that London-based designer David Koma will be the new artistic director for its women collections from 2 January 2014.

28-year-old Koma, who hails from Georgia and graduated from London’s Central Saint Martins in 2009, succeeds Nicola Formichetti, who left the fashion house in April 2013 for a new role at Diesel. David Koma’s first collection for Mugler will be a resort range to be shown in June 2014, and in September he will have its first runway show at the helm of Mugler during Paris Fashion Week.
