Inspired by the arid desert landscape, the Ports 1961 show on Friday took the audience by storm. The palette was a muted mix of sandy hues with pops of emerald green and magenta. I loved the bright white peaking out from the warm khaki tones of a swingy cropped trench in the first look of the show. So wearable! So chic!
The models gave off a cool-as-can-be Farrah Fawcett vibe with their voluminous curly hair and shimmering bronze skin. Beyond the desert theme, what unified the show was the beautiful draping. Each look seemed to float effortlessly on the model as she graced the runway with long, sweeping strides.
The show progressed into evening wear with feathery dresses, rose-gold metallic, and some serious Swarovski crystal accents. For those willing to splurge, Fiona Cibani delivers the shimmering sand and sun of the Sahara directly into your wardrobe.
