V&A - Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up opens this Saturday

V&A South Kensington
Frida Kahlo:
Making Her Self Up
Opens this SaturdayFrida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up
In 1954, following her death, Frida Kahlo’s possessions were locked away in the Casa Azul, in Mexico City, her lifelong home. 

Half a century later, her collection of clothing, jewellery, cosmetics and other personal items was rediscovered.  We reunite, items discovered in the Blue House with key self-portraits, and photographs that show Kahlo wearing many of the clothes on display.

Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up offers a fresh perspective on the life story of this extraordinary artist, whose charisma and powerful sense of style continue to captivate.
