Just like the iconic Frida Kahlo, this masterpiece needs no introduction!
This dress channels the spirit of an extraordinary artist and an iconic era in Mexican art, embodying strength, tradition, and unapologetic self-expression – just as Frida did in her masterpieces.
Imagine slipping into this stunning button-down maxi dress crafted from the most beautiful vintage red cotton. It's like a whisper from days gone by, wrapping you in a lightweight embrace that's a nod to Frida Kahlo herself.
What makes this dress really unique is its artistic flair, just like Frida's signature style. The detachable belt? Genius! It lets you shape and style the dress as you please. Belt it up, and it even evokes that classic hourglass shape, reminiscent of the Mexican Adelitas – strong, traditional, and absolutely fabulous. To highlight your beautiful curves!
Do you prefer a more relaxed oversized look? The Frida dress has you covered! Wear it unbelted or even open as an overdress for warm days!
Now, let's talk about the embroidery – it's done by Chiapas' third-generation artisans. These talented masters have lovingly stitched colorful floral patterns over cotton, which I've carefully hand-stitched onto delicate lace frills, and then placed them onto the dress. Every piece is a fusion of emotions and experiences, much like the vibe Frida brought to her self-portraits. And guess what? Each dress is a one-of-a-kind work of art.
But here's the fun part: this dress isn't just classy; it's got a bit of an edginess. Voluminous sleeves, oversized cuffs, and that dramatic ruffle at the bottom – it's all about daring, drama, and playfulness, just like Frida's art.
Beyond being a pretty dress, it captures the essence of Frida Kahlo's artistic legacy. It's all about passion for self-expression, unapologetic individuality, and embracing your own unique power. So, when you put this dress on, it's not just another “piece”; it's a piece of wearable art that lets you show your true spirit.
Oh, and did I mention it comes with pockets and those classy French seams? You know, it's all about those little details that matter in my limited-edition pieces – we're all about the craftsmanship. That's why this piece is made to order, just like the love and dedication we poured into crafting each one, much like Frida's devotion to her art.
So, it's not just a dress; it's a wearable masterpiece that lets you channel your inner artist and the powerful woman you are.
Step into the world of self-expression, make a bold statement with your unique personality, and let your spirit shine, just like Frida did in the art world.
Please note that every Frida Dress is a masterpiece. Each embroidery patch has been crafted by a family with three generations of artisans in Zinacatan Chiapas. This means each embroidery piece is a one-of-a-kind creation, displaying its distinctive and asymmetrical beauty. Therefore, every dress is unique, and the embroidery will be slightly different than the one showcased in the photos.
Keep in mind that due to their meticulous craftsmanship, the waiting time for your order is between 6 to 8 weeks. Don't miss out!
