Blooming out of the Chelsea Flower Show, the most prestigious flower show in the world, are a number of city-wide floral festivals that have in recent years become even more Instagrammable than the main event itself. With crocuses, roses, and whimsical wild flowers adorning shop fronts across the capital, May in London celebrates petal power mania in regal glory.
But among the petals resides the jewel in the floral crown: Frida’s Parlour. This pop-up Frida Kahlo-inspired installation is styled to mirror the interiors of Frida's studio in Casa Azul, the artist’s famed residence in Mexico City. At the heart of the temporary exhibition space is the Wallpaper Room. Inspired by the featured backdrop in Nickolas Muray’s famous photograph of the artist, its selfie-conducive backdrop transforms it into one of the most Instagrammable places in London. For the duration of the festival, Frida's Parlour also hosts a series of creative workshops, from Frida-inspired floral headdress-making sessions to self-portraiture classes.
Get your Frida fix ahead of the most talked about fashion exhibition of the year, celebrating the possessions and wardrobe of an international style icon.
Entrance to Frida's Parlour (141 Ebury Street SW1W 9QW) is free, but the series of workshops taking place at Frida's Parlou during Belgravia in Bloom cost between £20-£25. All workshops are ticketed.
