Frida

I was at the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V & A yesterday. Loved seeing her personal effects, particularly her sewing box and the little rag doll she had made. When I had put together my Frida Doll course I had not known that she made them too.
I learnt so much about Tehuana costume and was surprised at how rich the fabrics, weaving and embroidery were. In the photographs I have seen over the year it has always been the colour combinations that had impressed me so it was good to get so close to the fabric themselves .
Here is a link to the exhibition. They have extended the date slightly so you might be able to get tickets but be warned it is very busy.
