    Frida: Style Icon charts Frida’s fashion evolution through 50 beautifully illustrated style moments including pieces from her famous wardrobe, her most iconic looks and her own special kind of styling. From embroidered blouses and traditional Tehuana dresses to indigenous treasures and jewellery strung by Frida herself, this book showcases how Frida used her style as a means of personal and political expression. Her wardrobe includes examples of traditional Mexican dress – rebozos (shawl), embroidered huipiles (square-cut tops) and enaguas (skirts), as well as a series of hand-painted medical corsets and supportive back-braces which also illuminate the story of her near-fatal bus crash at the age of 18.
