Frida Kahlo was a true pioneer, a revolutionary woman who has helped paved the way for women’s rights in Mexico. The legacy she has passed on to us through her art and through her life, has left an indelible mark in our culture. She is an example of dignity, strength , grace, courage, beauty and love in what has been, and continues to be, a predominantly machista Mexican society.
Sophie Simone Designs was honored to have been invited by the prestigious V&A Museum in London to take part in theFrida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up exhibit which begins June 13th, 2018. The #YoSoyFridaSSD project was born out of a desire to honor Frida through a series of portraits of strong women who decided to represent her in their unique and personal ways.
Sophie Simone Designs is proud to give the stage to these amazing women, and to have them represent us through their images and their stories as they relate to Frida.
Viva Frida, vivan las mujeres y viva Mexico!
