Frida Kahlo-Inspired Line Creates Jobs For Mexico's Indigenous Artists

Mexico Culture and Pride Kickstarter Video (Mexico Cultura y Orgullo)

Frida Kahlo, one of the most iconic and easily recognizable artists of all time, was also a strong champion of indigenous Mexico’s culture and people. From her clothes - vibrant folk wear inspired by her home country’s history - to her paintings featuring local imagery and color, Mexico was as much a part of Frida Kahlo as her iconic unibrow and braids.

Recently, Latin American fashion businesswoman Adriana Pavon sought to honor that influence with the first project in her just-launched initiative Mexico Culture & Pride. The organization manufactures sustainable fashion accessories, while also creating jobs for several indigenous cultures throughout Mexico - starting with the people of Oaxaca.

Mexico Culture & Pride aims to conserve the cultural textile traditions that have made the region’s colorful rugs, dresses, and jewelry world-renowned, and provide education, fair trade commerce, and traveling exhibitions.

The first stage in her three-pronged attack is a Kickstarter fundraiser to develop a “multi-city collaborative exhibition tour” and will be unveiling a line of Frida Kahlo-inspired wears.
