‘Frida Kahlo: Fashion is the Art of Being’ by Susana Martínez Vidal charts the world renowned artist’s immense influence on fashion across generations and into the present day.
Published by Assouline, this beautiful volume includes photographs and works by the artist herself, international fashion editorials inspired by her unmistakable aesthetic and insightful accompanying words by Mexico City-based fashion journalist Susana Martínez Vidal.
Frida Kahlo used her personal image as her art. Her understanding of the importance of image informed her work; with her canvas as her mirror, Kahlo was the painter, model and the subject – using the optical effects of fashion to inform her work. Living between Mexico City, Paris and New York, her fashion became a fusion of influences, an avant-garde understanding that pioneered new fashion trends wherever she went, and still does today.
This beautifully presented volume pays tribute to the iconic artist and her bold beauty, style and personality, and would make a unique addition to your library.
