A Backstage Moment with Tia Cibani of Ports 1961

Caroline Torem Craig

WHAT: A few moments backstage with Ports 1961 designer Tia Cibani
WHERE: The Promenade at Bryant Park
WHEN: Feb. 11, 2010
THE SCENE: Before her Fall 2010 fashion show, "the quiet before the storm," Tia showed PAPERMAG her favorite coat in the collection, urged us to have a bite of food (including a baby-sized box of cheesecake) and graciously posed for photos. One lone model arrived bundled up to fend off the frigid weather, but within moments the tent was swarming with models and the "entourage," and the relaxed atmosphere turned into pre-show madness. Time for us to leave!
