Frida Kahlo Exhibition at the V&A

Just been reading about this exhibition which starts on 16th June and runs until November, I love the V&A and will go to see this sometime. I don't know much about her art but  the brightly coloured Mexican clothes and jewellery she wore look amazing. Anybody else thinking of going?

Oh, the Wedding Dresses @Francesca, they were wonderful, I also went to the Quilts one too, they were beautiful, and more recently the Balenciaga -fabulous. I used to go to London more often but the cost of train fares and I get so tired these days limits my outings.

I wanted to go to the wedding dress one but didn't get there  :angry: I did go to the ballgowns though which I loved and the Alexander McQueen one which was AMAZING.

Was really sorry to miss the Alexander McQueen, had tickets but unfortunately we were nursing Mum through her final illness so I couldn't get there.  I'm hoping to get to the Frida Kahlo one though, looks amazing.

I enjoyed the Balenciaga exhibition but my heart was stolen by the EH Shepherd Winnie-The-Pooh exhibition which was on  at the same time  <3

Thanks for the info, that's definitely one for my husband and I together. It's his birthday in November so that might work well.

I was in the V&A on Tuesday and saw the advanced publicity for Frieda Kahlo.  I intend to go and see this.
