I was invited to a special event at Holt Renfrew last night. A private showing of the Pink Tartan
Collection by Kimberley Newport Mimran (creator and designer for Pink Tartan). The event was filled with the who's who in the Calgary fashion scene including Leah Van Loon (Stylist), Kim Flannigan (Stylist), Lincoln Phillips (Stylish/fashion writer), and Malwina Gudowska (Vitamin Daily Calgary).
The collection was all about Summer Chic. Fabulous summer tweeds mixed with cotton jersey. The prints were also exceptional. Reminded me of being at a chic beach resort in the French Riviera. The patterns were also quite chic with rope accents and chain links, a vintage take but modernized with the use of bold colours. Coral was the it colour for the collection and looks stunning. Mimran also mentioned her attention to detail which I think is so important: horn buttons, fabulous piping, and monogramed blazers.
A definite hit with the Calgary crowd as right after the presentation there was a mad dash to the racks to pick out their fave find.
