The women's press - Vogue in the United States, The Face in the United Kingdom, Marie Claire or Le Monde in France - are tearing up her drawings, whose style, direct and colourful, is world renowned. Published alongside the photographs of the most famous fashion photographers, Viramontes works for the greatest couturiers.
