In 1983 he brought his designs state side and began selling them in New York and in Beverly Hills, and by 1988 he had opened boutiques in Beverly Hills, New York, and Paris. His seductive, clinging clothes were a massive success, and he was dubbed by the media 'The King of Cling'. Devotees included both fashion-inclined celebrities and fashionistas: Tina Turner, Raquel Welch, Madonna, Brigitte Nielsen, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, Carine Roitfeld and Carla Sozzani.
