Ports 1961 Spring 2011

This season Ports 1961 designer Fiona Cibani drew inspiration from the magic allure of the desert.

With delicate mirage abstractions and a landscape in constant evolution as her muse, Fiona crafted a collection within a realm of harmonic contrasts.

We were presented with printed dress, utilitarian belted jackets, sleek silk gowns, flared legged pants, bandeau dresses, asymmetrical twist dresses and embellished gowns.

Key accessories included simple necklaces, leather ankle boots, cut-out sandals and chunky bangles.

Favourites: The embellished tunic dress and metallic jumpsuit

Front Row: Olivia Palermo and Eric McCormack

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Olivia Palermo, Emily Deschanel, Kate Walsh, Kerry Washington and Jordana Brewster

Before the show started there was some big news.

Between the Peter Som’s presentation at 9am and the Ports 1961 presentation at 3pm, Olivia had totally restyled her hair.

It went from long to a shorter wavy bob. Like she wasn’t adorable enough.

    Fiona did a great job, what you saw on the runway last week is very much her aesthetic judgment, pretty is the priority!

    I really like the first dress in the “Embellishments” category. I like that its tasteful with the sleeves and a nice skirt length but its also fun with the embellishments. I am going to be *so* jealous of whoever wears that dress first lol
