Backstage at Ports 1961, designer Fiona Cibani had a dream about a mysterious enchanting garden and translated it into layers of silk, lace and organza. The word soft defines best the Ports 1961 Spring/Summer 2013 collection- nothing is contrived and everything simply flows. The designer referred to something very soft, floaty and dreamy when describing her collection. Using effortless silhouettes and special layering techniques, Cibani made her dream come true. "I wanted to diffuse this dream feeling”, said Cibani who illustrated clearly her definition of contemporary femininity: “it is about comfort, what feels good to you and this comes from the inside out”. Throughout the show, blouson sheath dresses, jumpsuits with plisse wide trousers, and cape-like backs on trench coats made the key looks.

The clothes seemed to stand naturally off the body to reveal as much as they concealed- almost all of the mesmerizing prints were covered by sheer chiffon. A true couture spirit can be seen in the embellished necklines with tubular embroideries, and some sequins and crystal trimmings. Some sporty inspired outfits with leather Bermuda shorts give a cool twist to an overall very delicate proposal.

Effortless elegance expressed through a complex layering process, the last look of the show concluded the tale and the dream: a bi-color bonded nappa apron dress with a silk chiffon overlay.
