Nicola Formichetti Wants to Work with Lady Gaga Again

Nicola Formichetti Wants to Work with Lady Gaga Again

Italian-Japanese fashion designer and longtime Haus of Gaga collaborator Nicola Formichetti tells Attitude Magazine's September issue that he wants to work with her again. The Diesel artistic director made his name creating some of Lady Gaga's most iconic looks, and the designer says that the time has come to work with Mother Monster again as she embarks on a brand new era.

Formichetti, now the creative director of Parisian fashion house Mugler, is the genius who helped create Gaga's legendary meat dress for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, but the 41-year-old says the 'Bad Romance' singer was "so encouraging" when he decided to pursue his own projects.
In an exclusive interview in Attitude's September issue, he says: "I miss working with her [Gaga]. We worked together for a long time, then I wanted to go off and do my own thing, and she was so encouraging. She was one of the first people to tell me to go to Mugler. She was like, 'I will support you, you'll be amazing'.

"When I went to Diesel she was supportive again. It's been a couple of years and we were like, 'I think it's time to do some stuff together again'."

Formichetti might have plenty of experience designing iconic outfits for celebrities, but he still has a wishlist of those he would have loved to have dressed, including the late greats David Bowie, Liberace and Michael Jackson.
