PICTURE: #5 IN SIXTEEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
TZIPORAH SALAMON TALKS ABOUT HER 5th OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Skirt by an Israeli designer named Priscilla Gatica bought in Israel
Black T shirt
Antique lace capelet bought at the Pier Show
1920’s beaded cloche bought at the Pier Show
Early vintage parasol bought at the Pier Show
Bakelite bracelets collected over the years
Contemporary sandals bought at Bergdorf by an unknown French designer whose named has rubbed out.
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I fell in love with the skirt when I saw it and created the outfit around it with components that I already owned. The capelet picked up on the cording of the skirt as did the hat. The sandals picked up on the swirls of the capelet and the swirls of the beads on the hat; the parasol tied it all up.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
When I saw the skirt I knew that I had all the components in my closet to complete the outfit.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
I’d give it an 8.
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The high waist of the skirt required a thin fabric that would work tucked in. The cording of the skirt is what I wanted to emphasize so I picked up on it in the capelet and hat.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I don’t wear this outfit often. Only on occasions when I want to look like a lady.
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 like I’m from another time in this outfit – like a proper lady of the 20’s.
