For a while I've struggled with the #objectification of #Frida . Seeing her image on T shirts and handbags , reduced to just a #trend is upsetting . She's #morethanamonobrow . In fact , if you look at photos rather than her self portraits , you'll see that she didn't really have that much of one to begin with . Part of her #genderfuckery was emphasising and exaggerating her facial hair in paintings . She was a #political #woman , a #communist , #queer and a #rebel as well as being #disabled . For me she is a perfect 
#symbol of #intersectionalfeminism although I don't expect she would have 
 described herself that way . This piece is called Emerald Frida . The banners say : " I refuse to be your cliche" and " multifaceted woman" . What is Frida to you ? 

This goddess garment  is created using my patchworked Eco fabric in shades of green , the multifaceted fabric itself reflecting the multifaceted woman . This is an eco- feminist piece . 
It will fit all bodies up to UK 22 . 

Delicate wash , do not tumble dry. Iron on reverse .
