- Pink Tartan
- Toronto Fashion Week // Spring 2013
Kimberly Newport-Mimran was the first to present a collection this season at David Pecaut Square for Toronto Fashion Week and her Pink Tartan label did not disappoint.
Alana Zimmer, Irina Lazereanu and Amanda Laine were among the A-list models that strutted down the Pink Tartan runway led by the newest face of Maybelline cosmetics, Charlotte Free. The petite Miss. Free made her way down the runway in an ultra girlie look featuring a full pale pink skirt that matched perfectly with her signature cotton candy hued tresses. Her hair seemed to reflect the colour palette for the entire collection that was full of crisp whites, various pink hues and the ever trendy mint. Keeping the colour palette interesting was the introduction of bold butterfly patterns and light metallic fabrics. Proportions were oversized yet mostly quite structured while still staying sweet and feminine. Small, round straw hats were the main accessory that adorned many models side parted soft swept hair that pulled the cutesy looks together. As the show came to a close black and shimmery gold’s made an appearance on the full skirts, seams and ever on trend crop tops that we have seen parading down fashion week runways around the world.
The highlight of the show had to be the debut of the brand’s new collaboration with Aldo Shoes for it’s Aldo Rise spring 2013 collection. The trapeze-shaped wedges that were inspired by Pink Tartan’s spring 2013 collection itself will be available in either pink with silver or black with gold.
