For Sping/Summer 2009, Ports 1961 designer Tia Cibani sent a collection down the runway that reflected the line's Oriental tradition (the Ports 1961 operation was based in China until a few years ago). Utilizing lush fabrics and luscious colors, Cibani created a smart sophisticated line for fashionistas who take their tradition "straight up with a twist."

Of particular note was the use of soft metallic fabrics to add a note of glitz. Also of note was the use of huge abstract necklaces and "folly" hats. This collection would be right at home showing at the Museum of Modern Art.

Good job.
