I have long been an admirer of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, so when I heard that the much talked about exhibition of her clothes and personal effects, ‘Frida Kahlo; Making Her Self Up’, was coming to the Victoria and Albert Museum I thought it would be great to get together with some other creatives and collaborate on a shoot inspired by Frida.

Elizabeth of Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium was as excited as I was by Frida’s bold use of colour and pattern, and came up with the idea of loosely basing the shoot around one of her most famous paintings, Las Dos Fridas (The Two Fridas). This allowed us to explore both the vivid palette that epitomises Frida’s love of her Mexican heritage, and her more conflicted reflections on her mixed European ancestry ( her adored father, though a naturalised Mexican, was in fact of German descent), signified by her portrayal of herself in the painting in more typically white Victorian dress.

Below is our take on the vibrant Frida, captured beautifully by photographer Roberta Facchini
