Toronto Fashion Week: Pink Tartan goes up in the air for fall


Judging from the biker jackets, boat loads of black, military toppers and slick leather dresses, the Fall 2010 Pink Tartan girl is one tough cookie. Designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran (who took her runway bow in skinny camo pants and matching peep-toe heels) struck the ideal balance of strong and soft with pieces, such as the rhinestone-encrusted white blouse, off-white brocade cropped trousers, slick high-waisted pleated skirt and the grey deep-V dress with Mongolian lamb skirt. (Isn’t it marvelous when utilitarian meets glam?) Many of the PT models sported Amelia Earhart–inspired aviator caps in classic tan (for the sophisticate) and silver metallic (for the futurist). Overall, the collection seemed to take off and land with little or no turbulence.  We can hear the cash registers ringing….
