Maurice developed what became known as "New Wave Punk Rock". In developing the hair fashions, Maurice "worked with the Tokyo Street designers Betsey Johnson and John Galliano". These famous designers "took the fashion genre to the extreme" and Maurice "kept in step by developing the hairstyles that worked in harmony with the evolving fashions".
Maurice explained that before 1973 the Japanese fashion and hair scene was extremely conservative. Through his pioneering efforts, the entire hair and fashion scene exploded and "completely opened up".
Now Japan leads the rest of the world with its edgy fashions and hairstyles, originally the creation of Maurice back in the early 1970s. His vision ultimately created a major hair and fashion revolution.
