Mugler, who was later remembered as "the daddy of Eighties power dressing", found his fashion business suffering huge losses by the early 2000s; in 2003 the couture line was discontinued by majority-shareholder Clarins.1 Mugler is today best known for his fragrance house, which is likewise owned by Clarins.
