New York Fashion Week 2012: Ports 1961 Fall 2012 (PHOTOS)

Who Was There: Arianna Huffington, Bryan Boy (seated next to each other), Phillip Bloch, Jay Manuel, J. Alexander

The Skinny: Set in the New York Public Library, in what was effectively a black box backdrop, the fall 2012 Ports 1961 collection was striking in its austerity and glamour. Boxy metallic jackets and tunics opened the show, which eased into what we'll call "mullet dresses"--business in the front and party (aka a lot of sex appeal) in the open back.
