Travel Vlog: Visit to the Frida Kahlo Museum

Happy Friday, dolls! I still have so much to share about that Mexico City trip! I practically lived there for 2 months! It's been a little over a month since my return and I still can't get over it. It was such an amazing time, including work, believe it or not. During my time there, my husband was able to visit and we truly made the most of the weekends he stayed with me. For this episode of Travel with The Fashion Lotus, we visited the Frida Kahlo Museum in a town right outside of Mexico City called Coyoacán, Frida hometown. It is a beautiful town filled with art and history. Usually the line to get into the museum is super long, but we were fortunate enough that it moved pretty quickly. There is a fee to enter, and also a small fee to take pictures. Check out the video above so you can the breath taking gardens and the amazing exhibit, straight out of Frida's wardrobe. *Quick note, if you read up on Frida's biography, you'll learn that she suffered from tremendous health issues and a horrible accident that left her with severe back pains. A lot of her art and fashions (like the braces, corsets, etc) were inspired by this. And this went on to inspire renowned fashion designers as well, such as Comme de Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier and Riccardo Tisci, among others. 

Feliz Viernes, mis amores! Todavía tengo tanto por compartir de mi viaje a Ciudad Mexico! Practicamente, estuvo viviendo allí por casi 2 meses! Hace un poco más de un mes desde que regresé, pero aún no lo supero, Fue una experiencia inolvidable, incluyendo todo el trabajo, aunque no lo crean. Durante mi estadía, mi esposo me visitó varias veces y disfrutamos muchísimo, aprovechando esos fines de semana lo más posible. Para este episodio de  Viaja con The Fashion Lotus, visitamos al Museo de Frida Kahlo en Coyoacán, un pueblo just afuera de Ciudad México, y el lugar de nacimiento de Frida. Es un pueblo muy pintoresco, lleno arte e historia. Usualmente la fila para entrar al museo es muy larga, pero tuvimos la fortuna de que se moviera rápido. Hay un costo para entrar y un pequeño cargo por tomar fotos. Vean el video para que vean los hermosos jardines y la increíble exhibición del atuendo de Frida! *Nota al calce, si leen un poco de la biografía de Frida, sabrán que ella sufría de tremendos problemas de salud y un accidente terrible que la dejó encamada con un dolor paralizante de espalda. La gran mayoría de su arte y diseños de moda fueron inspirados por esto. Y luego fue a inspirar grande diseñadores de moda como Comme de Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier y Riccardo Tisci, entre otros.
