Published to accompany an exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 16th June-4th November, 2018.

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.

Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up offers a fresh perspective on the life story of this extraordinary artist, whose charisma and entirely individual way of dressing made her one of the most photographed women of her time.

Specially-commissioned photographs show her distinctive Mexican outfits alongside her self-portraits, an unprecedented pairing that is enriched by iconic images taken in her lifetime.
