Pink Tartan Fall 2013

Local & Opulent Pink Tartan Fall 2013

Pink Tartan is one of the biggest runway shows every season at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week. Designed by Kimberley Newport-Mimran, one half of Canada’s most powerful fashion couple (her husband is Joe Mimran, the man behind Joe Fresh), the Pink Tartan presentation is sure to draw the biggest crowds and the biggest names in the city. Monday evening’s show was no exception.

Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Marnie, Newport-Mimran transported us back to the early 1960s. The show opened with our main character, a woman in a blonde wig, approaching a house. As she knocks on the door, the audience sees the door open, a baseball bat, and the screen goes black. The show begins. Models donning the same wig, presumably meant to be the woman from the film, take to the runway. Perhaps our protagonist is a wrong woman seeking revenge. Whatever the case, she is well dressed and on a mission.

Swing coats, capelets and shift dresses dominated the catwalk. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING was trimmed or accented with fur. The entire collection could easily be plucked off of the runway and put straight onto the backs of Toronto’s top fashionistas. Once again, Pink Tartan has captured the Canadian woman’s desire for high fashion and practicality.

      I totally agree with Paula – this is one of the first collections I’ve seen where I would wear more than half the items!
