Queen of polaroids Maripol is renowned for her work styling and photographing iconic figures in the 1980s New York art scene. She styled Madonna‚Äôs early image, Blondie‚Äôs Parallel Lines album cover and worked with Grace Jones, who was the first to wear the Maripol rubber bracelets which became a fashion craze.
Spring / Summer 2015 charts Maripol‚Äôs iconic photographs, fashion and design work, from the late 1970s right up to the present. From Fiorucci to Marc Jacobs - and from Madonna to Grace Jones, via Basquiat, Warhol and Keith Haring - Maripol has exerted a huge influence on fashion, photography and art for nearly 40 years and shows no sign of slowing down.
The exhibition gathers over 50 of her photographs, which form a compelling picture of the New York art and fashion scene, will be on show alongside key examples of her garments, from delicate silk shirts printed with photographic imagery to bold jumpsuits and striking jackets, together with a selection of her jewellery work.
