Fridays Female Hero - Frida Kahlo 1907-1954

We celebrate the life of Frida Kahului. Born near Mexico City in 1907 she contacted Polio aged 6. This left her with a limp. Later she broke her pelvis and spine in a tram crash and underwent repeated gruelling operations throughout her life.

Famous for her facial hair; reportedly darkening her monobrow and ‘tache’ . Her strong identity with the working class and her concept of beauty gave us the joy of dressing up and decorating yourself for fun.

Go on be a Frida!
