The upcoming 2008 Olympics in Beijing has designers in a frenzy to get their names heard. American sportswear brand Ports 1961 has secured a deal with NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, and the USA Network correspondents to wear its classic designs while covering the exciting events in Beijing.
“When I was first approached to create a capsule collection for the NBC Olympic Commentators, I was honored,” said Tia Cibani, Creative Director of Ports 1961. “I can relate to their hectic work schedule and the necessity to have to have easy, modern, and accessible clothing that travels well. I took into consideration each woman’s personal sense of style and fused it with the classic Ports 1961 sensibility.”
Commentators to be outfitted in Ports 1961 include NBC late-night show host and Olympic correspondent Mary Carillo, MSNBC coverage host Melissa Stark, USA Network and CNBC coverage host Alex Flanagan, and Oxygen coverage host and sports desk reporter Lindsay Czarniak. Go team USA!
