Susana Martínez Vidal, the author of this book, is a fashion and lifestyle journalist based in Mexico City and Madrid, with more than twenty-five years of experience. She held prominent positions as the director of Elle Spain and Elle Decor España, and also founded and directed Ragazza magazine. It was through her role as director of Elle Spain that she found inspiration in Frida Kahlo, leading her to produce her first fashion editorial. Since then, Vidal has passionately explored Kahlo's profound influence in fashion, music, and culture. The pivotal moment came in 2012 when Vidal personally experienced the groundbreaking exhibition of Frida's clothing at La Casa Azul, which ignited her desire to write this very book, her first venture as an author.


The foreword for Frida Kahlo: Fashion as the Art of Being was written by fashion editor Lynn Yaeger. Lynn writes about fashion and other topics for Vogue, Travel & Leisure, Architectural Digest, WSJ magazine, and many other publications. She lives in downtown Manhattan, where she can be found haunting flea markets every weekend.
