PICTURE: #12 IN SIXTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
TZIPORAH SALAMON TALKS ABOUT HER 12th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
1920’s Chinese silk pajamas
1920’s Chinese cloud collar
1920’s straw hat with red chopstick as a hat pin
Vintage straw bags
Antique ivory earrings assembled by Singkiang from antique board game pieces
Antique ivory bracelet; Prada shoes
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
The pajamas came first and the accessories were assembled one at a time to enhance the pajamas.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
It took years for it all to come together.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
9. I love this outfit. It’s so elegant and yet so simple and easy to wear.
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The pure white and the vibrant red embroidered flowers are such a contrast and work brilliantly. So I emphasized the color red in my accessories with the shoes, bag and chopstick in the hat and of course, the red collar which was the last piece that I found and that absolutely makes the outfit.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I wear this outfit often—whenever I want to wear something special and yet be casual.
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
I feel great in this outfit. Put together and yet playful, and super comfortable. And the thick lush silk is divine.
