The Fabric of My Life

A sartorial autobiography written and presented by Tziporah Salamon
April 30th, 7pm

The Fabric of My Life is a sartorial autobiography written and presented by Tziporah Salamon. Using pictures, stories, anecdotes and clothes, Tziporah weaves a rich tapestry of her journey towards self.


Born to Hungarian Jews, both Holocaust survivors, and both tailors, Tziporah describes her childhood in Natanya in the newly formed state of Israel, the move to America at the age of 9 that broke her heart, her schooling at Erasmus Hall High School, SUNY Buffalo, graduate school in California and quitting a PhD in psychology to come back to NY to pursue fashion. Watch her personal style evolve as she morphs from being the best dressed little girl in Natanya, to the “best in the Hall” in Erasmus, to the most sophisticated coed in Buffalo, to the artistic hippie in Berkeley, to the elegant and creative international woman of today. You will feel her pain and rejoice in her triumphs as Tziporah struggles to find the perfect fit - the right venue that will allow her to utilize her unique skills and intelligence while still retaining her individual sense of style and refusal to compromise her ideals and vision.

Join us for this unique theatrical experience followed by a wine and cheese reception with Tziporah Salamon.

Tickets are now available for $20 ($15 for BSM members). To purchase tickets by phone please call 416-979-7799 x 239.
