No one thought it would last beyond her reality television star turn on MTV's The City, but here she is, a handful of seasons in, and Whitney Port
's Whitney Eve clothing label is still going strong.
The designer's spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week attracted a front row that included reality star Kelly Bensimon
, models Nicole Trunfio
and Jessica Hart
, and other boldface names including India de Beaufort
, Charlotte Ross
, Eric West, and Mya
Port showed a menswear-inspired print-heavy collection that played on a pastel watercolor palette—summery pieces that wouldn't look out of place in sunnier climes or worn by someone who looks like Port (blonde, willowy, Californian).
Most pleasantly surprising in Port's collection? The charming and unique prints—which were culled by magnifying, shattering, and blurring images of precious stones, crystals, and rocks. Pretty cool, huh?
