    After a whole week of NYFW presentations, parties, and shows last month, the endless parade of heels, runway music, and even clothing started to blur together. But amidst all that commotion, there were a few up-and-coming shows that stuck out. One of them was Tia Cibani's spring '14 presentation. Her Frida Kahlo-inspired, confetti-filled party box of a show not only solidified Cibani — who used to serve as creative director of Ports 1961 — as one of NY's style game changers, but also brought the fun back into all that fashion.
