Maripol was brought up in France before moving to New York, USA in 1976. She is an artist, film producer, fashion designer and stylist who has had an influence on the looks of many influential artists, including Grace Jones, Deborah Harry, and Madonna. Maripol is also a Polaroid artist photographer who has exhibited her photos in art galleries all over the world. Her photographic work is being collected by museums. In 2006, Maripol had a new book of her life's photography published.
Maripol is best known for designing for and styling pop singer Madonna during the Madonna and Like a Virgin albums in the mid-1980s. Maripol's trademark black rubber bracelets, jewelry and crucifixes became as iconic as Madonna herself in these early years.
In the early 1980s, Maripol was the art director for hip Italian boutique Fiorucci. By the mid-80s, Maripol had achieved some success with her own shop, Maripolitan, in the NoHo area of New York. She also made a line of official Madonna jewelry and accessories for the Like a Virgin tour.
At the same time she directed documentary films, such as "Crack is whack" on 1980s artist Keith Haring.
She has also worked as a film producer, most notably on Downtown 81, a film starring artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and featuring Blondie lead singer Deborah Harry, and musical interludes my many New York No Wave bands. The movie, directed by then partner Edo and written by Glenn O'Brien, was filmed in 1980-81 as New York Beat. However, it was not until 1998 that the film was rediscovered, cleaned up, edited and released (as Downtown 81) after being selected at the director's fortnight of the Cannes film festival in the year 2000.
She has been the art director on music videos for Cher, D'Angelo, Elton John, and Luther Vandross.
