new york: little red riding hood

new york-based maripol arama first gained the limelight as a stylist of 1980s pop icons madonna, grace jones and debby harry, but really shot to fame later on as a polaroid celebrity shnapper. now publisher damiani has released little red riding hood, a 240-page book that not only covers maripol's fascinating career through her signature polaroid shots, collages and illustrations, but also captures much of new york's flamboyant 1980s disco scene. a release party + book signing is held today [4pm-7pm] at the newly opened bookmarc store. location: 400 bleecker street [west village]. © damiani
