If you haven't heard of Maripol, you will almost certainly be familar with her work. Remember Madonna's Like A Virgin era in the eighties wearing lace and dripping in crucifixes? That was the brainchild of Maripol. She was responsible for creating and styling many of the now infamous looks from that era, that began on the streets of NYC and became a commercial success worldwide. She influenced and worked with some of the most exciting talent of the time from Debbie Harry to Keith Haring to Jean Michel Basquiat. She was a visionary of the time and her style still lives on today.
