In a complete change of subject matter, this month I have decided to draw clothing worn by Frida Kahlo. Frida was an amazing and unique style icon in her time and across history. She pushed the boundaries of fashion, colour, gender roles, design and self-expression. I adore her personal style as much as I do her artwork. Her influence on women and fashion will continue for generations to come. Here’s to a month filled with fashion and colour ♥
This is a black satin full-length skirt with chain stitch and floral embroidery. It is owned by the Museo Frida Kahlo and is currently on exhibition at the V&A or Victoria and Albert Museum London as part of the exhibition titled Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up. If you’re lucky enough to be in London, check it out 🙂 I’ll just admire from down here in the southern hemisphere…
