Frida Kahlo: Fashion as the Art of Being
Considered one of Mexico's greatest artists and admired as a feminist icon, painter Frida Kahlo is best known for her colorful self-portraits. With techniques learned from her father and, later, her husband Diego Rivera, she created hauntingly beautiful paintings that blended elements of surrealism and folklore. Kahlo's art was her personal diary: "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone…because I am the subject I know best." Filled with 150 images, this book pays tribute to Kahlo's artwork, vibrant character and bold style, exploring her intriguing story and why her singular aesthetic still inspires fashion, filmmakers, songwriters and artists today.
