New Pieces - Frida Kahlo Inspired Floral Headbands

frida kahlo headband by ggs mexican spanish
It's no secret that I absolutely adore Frida Kahlo. Ever since my days as an art student I've admired her painting style, her aesthetics and her philosophy. The piece that inspires me the most, and one of my favourite ever paintings is 'What the Water Gave Me'. It resonated so much with me as an 18 year old, and I don't think I've ever had a bath without visualising the painting, whether it's her version or my own strange landscape.

Before I get too deep, on with the blog!

I know Frida inspires lots of designers, and she seems to be more popular than ever, becoming a fashion icon in her own right, something that is almost unheard of. She has even graced the cover of Vogue:

Frida Kahlo is also famous for her floral headdresses and I, inspired by this, have added a range of Frida-inspired floral bands to my shop
