Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress: Frida's Wardrobe by Carlos Phillips Olmed
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Frida Kahlo remains one of the most popular and enduring artists of our time - sales of Frida books number into the hundreds of thousands - and yet no volume has ever focused on one of the most memorable aspects of her creative output: her wardrobe. Now, for the first time, 95 original and 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.
