Toronto Fashion Week: Pink Tartan
THE LABEL Pink Tartan designed by Kimberley Newport-Mimran
THE COLLECTION For fall 2013, the designer paid homage to 1960s femmes fatales with figure-hugging sheath dresses, pencil-skirted suits, flirty shirt dresses and fluffy fur coats. There was a Stepford Wife vibe throughout the show with the models all styled in blond bob wigs.
THE ZOOMER TAKE While the retro look of the show was charming, there were also modern touches that kept the collection out of costume territory. The shimmery brocades, digitized floral prints and sport mesh fabric used in a dress was cool modern updates on the ‘60s classics.
