"THE FABRIC OF MY LIFE" PERFORMANCE AND BOOK SIGNING BY TZIPORAH SALAMON
Born to Hungarian Holocaust survivors, both tailors, Salamon begins her story with her childhood in Natalya, in the newly formed state of Israel. It charts her move to America at the age of 9 that broke her heart, her schooling at Erasmus Hall High School, SUNY Buffalo and graduate school in California, before quitting a Ph.D. program in psychology to return to New York to pursue fashion and life in the city, including a friendship with Cunningham.
Salamon's personal style evolves as she morphs from the best dressed little girl in Natalya, to the "best in the Hall" in Erasmus to the elegant and creative international woman of today. Feel her pain and rejoice in her triumphs as she struggles to find the perfect fit and the right venue that will allow her to utilize her unique skills and intelligence while retaining her individual sense of style and refusal to compromise her ideals and vision. Salamon's struggle is every woman's struggle: how to navigate life's currents and arrive safely at one's port while looking fabulous and unruffled during the journey.
Following the performance, Salamon will participate in a signing of her book "The Art of Dressing: Ageless, Timeless Style." Published by Rizzoli, the book profiles the most celebrated older women of today, showcasing their wardrobes and revealing the contents of their closets, while imparting practical tips on how to put together beautiful outfits.
"The Art of Dressing: Ageless, Timeless Style" will be available for purchase on-site; retail cost is $45.
A $9.00 flat-rate parking validation is provided for the Campanile Parking Garage, located at 1155 Juniper St. Atlanta, GA 30309, behind the theater.
