Tia Cibani

Tia Cibani’s creative journey continues with the debut of her namesake collection for Spring Summer 2013 launching in New York September 2012.

Her rich personal and professional background lends her a natural platform to present her ever-evolving aesthetic. Born in North Africa and raised in Canada, Tia attended Parson’s School of Design and subsequently moved to China to spend ten years honing her craft. Returning to New York and spearheading the launch of the Ports 1961 collection in 2004, Tia’s romantic and eclectic designs garnered regular editorial coverage worldwide. Tia’s role at the brand spanned from creative direction of the collections, to overseeing a major retail expansion, to launching a successful red carpet collection that dressed notable women of Hollywood and beyond.

In 2010, Tia left Ports 1961 to focus on personal pursuits, including starting a family.

After a refreshing hiatus Tia returns now to her passion for women’s wear with renewed energy and an evolved point of view that is very much her own. The TiA CiBANi Collection combines diverse global influences and integrates them into clean, urban silhouettes. With every season the brand will offer a full range of adaptable pieces that transition from day to evening and combine to produce myriad variations. Fundamental to the garments is the integrity of construction and the beauty of internal details. From start to finish the collection will be created and produced in New York City.
