Approximately 150 guests were invited to the occasion, where they sipped cocktails, nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and enjoyed live deejay music. Attendees were given an opportunity to view the Ports 1961 fall 2010 collection with a live model presentation. In addition, samples from the spring 2011 collection were also on hand for preview. In attendance were such esteemed guests as Mai Le, Rachel May and Joy Bianchi. This exclusive party was held at Bloomingdale’s San Francisco in their Designer Collections department.
