My Favorite Quote From Frida
''I paint flowers so they will not die.''
(Man, I wish I still had my Frida icon but I got bored of it.)

Frida Kahlo: The Unintentional Fashion Icon
Current Mood: cheerful
The style of dress worn by Frida Kahlo was a highly constructed performance -- a political statement of pride in indigenous Mexican culture, and a camouflage for her physical ailments. The regional costume Frida adopted was of the matriarchal community of Tehuana in southern Mexico, and continues to inspire designers and photographers around the world (as beautifully illustrated by Keri Pertin
.) And, as collections moving into 2009 will demonstrate, her influence hasn't lost it's charm.
"Frida on White Bench" by Nickolas Muray & "Diego on My Mind" by Frida Kahlo
Earlier this year, "Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress: The Fashion of Frida Kahlo
" was published -- the first book ever to focus on one of the most memorable aspects of her persona and creative oeuvre: her wardrobe
. In the book, beautifully staged photographs of Kahlo's newly restored clothing are paired with historic photos of the artist wearing them and her paintings in which the garments appear.
"Frida's life and style were an integral part of her art, and she is long overdue for recognition as a fashion icon." - Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress
