Ports 1961's Spring 2011

PORTS 1961 SS 2011 presentation

Ports 1961's Spring 2011 Drawing inspiration from the contrasts of jagged geometric forms against the sensuous curves of sand dunes, Fiona composes robust silhouettes that encompass delicate, fluid shapes in both draped and tailored pieces. Her innovative mirage - layering techniques produce a color degradé evocative of twilight desert skies, while artful embellishments suggest the fragile beauty of natural minerals. Iridescent crystals adorn evening wear, while luminescent granular film applied to fabric through heat treatment offers a modern interpretation of applique, further revealing the collection's contemporary spirit.
