Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self UpThe Victoria and Albert Museum's major fashion exhibition for 2018 puts the spotlight on Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and her famously colourful wardrobe. The artist's personal items, including necklaces, photographs and letters that have never been seen outside Mexico, will be displayed at the V&A from 16th June. The exhibition also puts key self-portraits on display, showing her wearing many of the costumes discovered in the Blue House, her home in Mexico City where she was born, lived and died. Medical corsets, jewellery, accessories, photographs and letters offer a fresh perspective on Kahlo's compelling life story. A unique opportunity to see material that, apart from the paintings, has never before been exhibited outside Mexico.
