La Casa Azul

We were fortunate to visit during the exhibition: Appearances can be deceiving – Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe, which allowed a fascinating glimpse into the personal items, prosthetics, braces, and casts she wore with traditional Tehuana dress from Oaxaca. The wardrobe was kept in storage for over 50 years at the request of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo’s husband. It was also just before Dia de los Muertos and there were preparations underway for the festival.
