Our February outfit challenge was to create an ethical/ sustainable outfit inspired by Frida Kahlo. Frida was a Mexican painter whose work is considered emblematic of national and indigenous tradition and is also celebrated by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.
Ethical Fashion Blogger Pao of Project Minima created this fantastic photograph inspired by a Frida painting for a feature about imitating art on Thrifted Shift.
I have also noticed plenty of fashion inspired by Frida Kahlo lately, which just happens to be sustainable. Check these out!
These Frida Kahlo pieces are
handmade by Lilygrace Originals
using vintage beads and Rhinestones. Check out the website for more Frida inspired jewellery.
This Frida t shirt by Ink Apparel
is dip dyed with original artwork hand painted onto an eco cotton t shirt. It is made in compliance with the Fairwear Foundation.
In case you are interested, there was an interesting article about Frida as a fashion icon
in the Daily Mail last month.
I hope you are having a good week. Please keep your eye out for our November DIY challenge which I will be posting very soon.
With warmest wishes
