Alongside David Bowie and Boy George, Marilyn and Co. were recognised as being the vanguards of non-gender specific fashion. Marilyn modelled for designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. A regular at ‘The Blitz’ nightclub run by Steve Strange of Visage, the club was the go-to venue for Spandau Ballet, Boy George and many others from the burgeoning New Romantic scene.
Twenty years later, Marilyn is back and better than ever.
