Spring 2010 fashion collection from Ports 1961 is modeled during fashion week in New York, Thursday Sept. 10, 2009.
Tia Cibani had been an intergrial part of the Ports brand for 25 years, the last five of which she spent as the creative director. In her new position, Fiona Cibani will shift her focus from Ports International to encompass Ports 1961 as well.
Though reasons behind Cibani's departure have not been revealed, the company's management bids Cibani an amicable farewell. We'd grown quite fond of the Ports world-traveling aesthetic under Cibani, so we can only hope such a keen vision runs in the family.
