Fashion Week Diaries: Ports 1961 Gives Tiers, Fringe, And Headgear

Patience was tested while waiting to get into the Ports 1961 show, but alas, the celebs were seated and the 'totem pole' inspired show by designer Tia Cibani began.

The live music by Cowboy Junkies gave a whole different feeling to a fashion show than I have ever experienced. The light and breezy soundtrack matched the Native-American-inspired collection. For next spring, my jewelry box is happy to know that statement accessories are still in the mix along with corset belts (which you'll be seeing all winter), and ballet flats (which we can't wait to get back into). Yellows, purples, metallic prints, and a variety of earth tones were seen on the runway in a variety of loose fitting dresses (yay), tiered skirts and jackets, pleats, and fringe. A few abstractly shaped dresses and large almost out-of-place head dressings threw a wrench into this otherwise Pacific Northwestern collection.

I had higher hopes for celeb-showing this season, but at least those that showed were fashionable. Grab a pair of faded grey skinny jeans like Brandy wore for $187.

Real-life Blair Waldorf, socialite Olivia Palermo, sat front row as well. Snag her style in this grey oversized collar dress for $440.
