Remembering Frida Kahlo: Photo Rose Suau

Today is the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's Birthday.  She was born on this day in the year 1907.  I'm honoring her bold and distinctive personal style with this post and a few photos from a recent art/fashion shoot.  I hope they inspires a host of Frida Kahlo shoots for my next pop up art exhibit. 
Artistic work and expression is very much a language of it's own in the Mexican culture.  A heritage I'm proud to share and celebrate.  Viva Frida and Viva Detroit!
p.s. A special thanks to the creative team of talent who helped to make this shoot possible, Rose Suau for photos, makeup, and shoot direction, Caitlynn DeMaggio for assistant editiing wardrobe stylist, Lindsey DeMaggio for hair stylist, and Vankou Photography, Evangelos K. for professional photos (Not posted here)
