Aborad: Paris & New York

Abroad: Paris and New York


They may be located on separate continents, divided by nearly six thousand kilometres and speak different languages; however Paris and New York share one thing in common: a fabulous eye for distinctive fashion and style. Parisian and American women and men have a certain ability to distinguish their home cities from any other and provide for a truly fashionable global scene. The culture of both cities is heavily influenced by the fashion and style, as are the perceptions of others world-wide.  No wonder a fashionista likes to travel!

Paris; playing queen to the rest of France, home to Chanel and known world-wide as the city of love. Although, ironically, Paris has among the highest rate of single people in the world, nobody seems fussed when there are macaroons, the Moulin Rouge and baguettes on bicycles to keep one occupied!

Cementing her place within the fashion industry, Port is a welcomed breath of fresh air, having designed an original collection that distinctly demonstrates her inherent creativity and knack for style. Influenced by her Los Angeles upbringing and her time spent in New York City, the collection combines a relaxed Californian style, with the perfect balance of edginess straight off the streets of Manhattan. Both ranges incorporate styles forming an array of silhouettes, from parry dresses to playful androgynous pieces that have been heavily influenced from Ports own signature style.
