Ports 1961 designer Tia Cibani showed a luxurious line of richly colored fall clothing enlivened by a dollop of funk. Gorgeous shades of mustard, orange, blued-greens colored rich wools, silks and silk brocades.

Cibani was born in North Africa, moved to Canada as a child and famously relocated the design and manufacturing shop to China when she first became head designer of Ports 1961 (formerly Ports International). She has now moved to New York. All these many international influences are interpreted in her designs.

Beautiful, rich and wonderful - that's Ports 1961. For more information about Ports 1961, log onto:
