Fashion designer most known for working predominately with latex.
She has had no formal design training, but constructed her first latex outfit in 1984. It was so well received that she began to design and manufacture more.
She was the first designer to practice printing on latex--an expensive and challenging process due to rubber's elasticity.
She married husband Adam Boome in 1994 and they had two children.
Madonna was one of her biggest fans, even asking the designer to create a one-of-a-kind pair of stilettos.
