VIVA FRIDA - Friday Nite Fridas

Went to a wonderful event on Friday evening at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.  The event was called: Viva Frida: From the Blue House to the Catwalk.  Museum goers were asked to celebrate their inner "Frida" in the Gaultier-inspired or the traditional fashion in a program curated by Rene Yañez. There was a Frida fashion fashion show, with entertainment in the form of dancing and singing Of special note was the singing of Liliana Herredia who belted and crooned an assortment of melodies accompanied by a fabulous guitarist. The Frida interpretations by volunteer models were varied, beautiful, outrageous and creative. What a site to see. What a celebration. This was memorable. Really memorable. 
I'm posting a few photos I took of the evening. If you'd like to see more, go to:



There is, by the way a Jean-Paul Gaultier exhibit going on now at the de Young Museum called 

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk which is pretty wonderful. If you live in the area or will be in the area, it is well worth  a visit.

Tomorrow is the Opening for Pasión de Frida. I have 4 Frida inspired items in the show. Hope you can stop by for the opening tomorrow. It is from 3 to 5pm at Puerto Alegre Restaurant 546 Valencia St. between 16th and 17th streets.

Happy Monday all!
