"Over the years me, him and Kollin [Carter] created even more fashion moments but nothing tops being able to finally meet him in person last year in Paris at his museum exhibit," she wrote. Cardi continued, "It's so crazy because I was second-guessing if I should go the whole time leading up to that trip. I had just given birth to my son like three weeks prior and wasn't feeling 100% like myself but something in my spirit kept saying 'GO.'"
She added, "Maybe God knew that if I didn't go then I may have never had the opportunity to thank him for everything he did and the doors he opened for me." Cardi concluded her tribute by calling Mugler "a true inspiration for all of us." Her relationship with Mugler began after her stylist Kollin Carter direct messaged the brand on Instagram when on the hunt for her Grammys look.
Mugler's passing was announced on his Instagram account on Sunday with a black square and a statement written in both French and English.
