The Art of Dressing
Street style isn’t just for the fashion ingenues who can’t seem to take a bad picture. And to prove that, Rizzoli has just released “The Art of Dressing: Ageless, Timeless, Original Style,” written by one of the great fashion icons, Tziporah Salamon.
Street style star Tziporah Salamon—who developed her passion for fashion at a very young age as the daughter of a tailor—turns the tables in this beautifully illustrated book, sharing the story of 10 incredible women and their inimitable style. All over the age of 50, these women—including author Amy Fine Collins, artist Michele Oka Doner, dancer Carmen de Lavallade, Marjorie Stern and Ruth Shuman—inspire with their sartorial choices, reflecting a life of creative flair and singular choices.
The women featured, including Salamon herself, offer a look into what inspires their wardrobes, and share some practical advice on putting together a dynamite ensemble. Salamon also includes sections breaking down the principles of dressing such as knowing what looks good on your body; shopping for the essentials; color, balance, and proportion; and, above all, good tailoring.
And you can trust the advice of this celebrated icon and fashion muse—the late Bill Cunningham was a longtime fan of hers. She has also appeared in Lanvin advertising campaigns and in the book and documentary, Advanced Style, and wrote and stars in her one-woman show, “The Fabric of My Life,” a sartorial visual autobiography.
