original mixed media fashion illustrations I completed for my graduate collection
This print is an original, complete with my own sketches, painting and photography. This print will be a part of a series of textiles for my collection which will serve to represent different aspects of frida kahlo’s life. This print in particular represents her sexuality and the challenges she had embracing her self as a woman. Love was a tricky topic for her, she experienced so much pain in her life- physically, emotionally, etc. Here I explore the impact on this on her sexual life and the varied and intense interactions she experienced, perhaps due to the for-mentioned history she had.
