Mexican Costume

"This website answers the question 'What would [artist] Frida [Kahlo] wear?' by offering a glimpse of some of the Mexican textiles of the Cordry Collection" at the Arizona State Museum. Dress Frida in traditional Mexican garments such as the huipile and quechquemitl by clicking on the thumbnail images in the exhibit's interactive features. Also includes background on Mexican textiles, brief biography of Kahlo, and a bibliography. Produced by an intern for the Arizona State Museum
