Muguette Buhler was born in France in 1905. When she was still a teenager, she joined the house of Madeleine Vionnet, the Paris fashion designer. She was amongst Vionnet's most talented designers, translating the exacting spirit of the period's creations throughout the 20's.
She was a particularly prolific artist, and after working with Vionnet, she went on to draw for Augustabernard and Jean Patou in the 30's, and later on for Mad Carpentier in the 40's and 50's. Mad Carpentier was set up by two of Vionnet's employees.
Muguette's exceptional archives included 15,000 drawings and sketches. These were donated to the UFAC by her daughter Rosine in 1994 and are now in the collection of the Musee de la Mode et du Textile in Paris.
