The Fashion and Textile Museum is hosting the first ever exhibition on the rebozo – the classic Mexican shawl made famous in the 20th century by artist Frida Kahlo. Historic rebozos from the Franz Mayer Museum, Mexico City will be showcased alongside loans from the British Museum. Also, contemporary Mexican artists, photographers and fashion and textile designers will be exhibiting their colorful work at the venue. How’s that for getting the full enchilada?
