Fashion Week: Ports 1961

Ports 1961 designer, Tia Cibani, had a vision: the Indian Mughai Dynasty. Translated into fashion, the designs were reminiscent of an Indian princess set free in London. Sometimes the designs were exquisite and restrained, like the piped wool coats. Other times the designs were much too ornate, like the gold lame dresses.

On either side of the spectrum, however, Tina was able to fashion a rich and detailed collection that was enhanced by the live Indian colonial marching band. You know, Red Baratt Festival is the only of its kind in the US!

In attendance was a full on fashion crowd, which included Anna Wintour (only three rows ahead), Grace Coddington and Hal Rubinstein.
