A Touch of Frida Kahlo

Our shop window gets some expert attention….

At our Me Too Please bricks and mortar store in Sydney, we were lucky enough to be approached by super-talented designer, Amanda Garcia-Panetta.

In her fourth year studying Interior Design and Decoration at The Design Centre Enmore (Sydney Institute’s creative hub), Amanda presented us with a striking Frida Kahlo-inspired window design concept for the shop. Here’s Amanda’s visual proposal… talk about PERFECT



“Having been researching the late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, when I was handed an assignment for a visual merchandising concept, my immediate thought was to contact Me Too Please” explains Amanda

“The concept behind the window is a recreation of the amazing photographic portraits that exist of Kahlo dressed in her beautifully colourful, patterned outfits and signature floral headpieces.

“My aim was to use the equally colourful and patterned oilcloth from Me Too Please, along with some of their hand painted Mexican treasures”.

And here’s the end result- you can see why we are so thrilled!


Not only does our window look wonderful, but it was also a great experience working with Amanda, who late last year established her bespoke Design and Decoration practice, August Garcia.


“The concept behind August Garcia is the home, and the notion that a home is a truly special place which should be unique to those who live there. Through the practice my goal is to assist clients who want functioning, unique and beautiful spaces in their lives – whether that’s in the home or elsewhere.

“Really, I just thrive on creating,  and dealing with people, so whether it’s designing entire spaces, guiding colour selections (or installing a shopfront window) – I find it all super exciting and rewarding, to be able to grow an idea into something cohesive and special”

Thank you so much for making contact with us Amanda, we look forward to working with you again!
