The Dresses of Frida Kahlo to be Featured in Mexico Museum


The colorful dresses, frocks and accessories of Frida Kahlo will be on display November 22, 2012 at the Frida Kahlo Museum in an exclusive exhibit titled “Appearances Can Be Deceiving: The Dresses of Frida Kahlo.”

Some of her most captivating, and infamous, outfits were kept hidden – at the request of her husband Diego Riveria – for more than 50 years and are now being viewed by the public for the first time in decades.

The collection, discovered in the Frida Kahlo archives, will include jewelry, headpieces, bathing suits, colorful dresses and more. This collection of clothing also explains why Kahlo chose to wear certain items that masked her disfigurements from childhood disease and trolley accident.

This exhibition is being sponsored by Vogue Mexico and the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City.
