The Ports 1961 S/S 11 show marked the departure of Tia Cibani and the debut of behind the scenes sister, Fiona, as head designer. A trip to explore the Sahara stood as the inspiration of the S/S 11 collection, that was made evident through the sandy colors. The collection transitioned from daywear to cocktail dresses all while maintaining a very fluid feel. A series of draped gowns were sent down the runway which were enlivened by the finale pieces. The meticulously embellished cream and faint blue pieces easily could symbolize a mirage in Cibani’s desert dream.
