The new line for designer Whitney Port was a hit at New York Fashion Week 2012. Her collection, Whitney Eve, was inspired by a kaleidoscope Port found in her grandmother’s home and all of its colors and patterns.
Port, a reality star who appeared on “The Hills” and then two years later on her own show based in New York, “The City,” had a lot to prove to the fashion world. Going from a reality start to a fashion designer, Port is trying to be seen as a serious designer.
Her fall 2012 line stood out with many different bold patterns. Her line featured many textures and layering, and it mainly showed neutral colors. Some pieces were plain and simple, such as a dress with patterned tights, while others had more patterns and colors to them, such as a floral top or shorts with bright polka dots. Many of her designs, such as blazers and high-rise pants, looked like work apparel.
There also were pieces perfect for a fun night out, like her brown glimmery dresss paired with brown tights and a high-rise silver skirt design with a flowy blue top. Her collection was very playful and also showed her talent of making the perfect patterned outfit. Port is hoping this line will help her be seen as a more serious designer in the fashion world.
