Frida Kahlo is famously known for her paintings, and her ability to express pain through her works. Dubbed as a Surrealist, Kahlo refused to claim the label since her paintings were not of dreams, but of how she truly viewed the world. Not a particularly celebrated artist during her lifetime, she would be quite surprised to realize the impact she has made, not only in the world of art, but as an icon of fashion.
Later in her life, she suffered from Gangrene and her right leg was amputated, and replaced by a wooden leg. Her shoes still colorful and delicately embroidered with various designs, it is visibly evident that her fashion sense still celebrated life.
In 2010, RicardoTisci's Couture Collection for Givenchy, was completely inspired by Frida Khalo.
