Supermodels Doutzen Kroes, Taylor Hill and Isabeli Fontana tell us why they are in love with Mugler and Creative Director David Koma’s futuristic vision and modern sense of style.”He’s an incredible designer and super modern and feminine at the same time and the fact that he’s so sweet and nice is just a bonus” Doutzen explained backstage.
David Koma is 29 years old, was born in Georgia and is now based in London. He showcased his first collection at the age of 15 after studying Fine Art in Saint Petersburg. Kona graduated in 2009 with distinction in MA Fashion from Central Saint Martins, he launched his own signature label in 2009 and has been Creative Director of Mugler since 2013. His sexy, ultra body-contouring look appeals to women who want to look cool and confident, but with an edge. “It’s not on purpose, it’s just kind of my hand writing – what ever I do it has a little bit of that futuristic touch“, David Koma told me after his Mugler Spring 2016 show at Paris Fashion Week.
Some of the world’s hottest models from Karlie Kloss to Georgia May Jagger have walked in David Koma’s Mugler shows, and they are all his fans, “it’s one of the main reasons I’m a fashion designer and why I want to do my job is them. Every time I see them walking in my show and being around wearing my clothes, really it inspires me and makes me want to more“.
