Chris Port was raised by a single Afro-Cuban mother in Brooklyn. Chris spent a lot of time on the streets of New York and quickly became infatuated with the way people were dressed.

Chris Port was taught how to sew by their grandmother Graciela, because everything Chris wanted to buy was too expensive.

Chris Port now makes some of the most unique pieces, here in New York. CPNY is an acronym for Chris Port New York, which specializes in matching sets made from unique fabrics such as mohair, french twill, lace, acrylic chenille tweed and more.
