Q&A with Pink Tartan designer Kimberley Newport-Mimran

City Life: What is it about 1962 French Riviera that set the inspirational backdrop for your SS12 collection?
Kimberley Newport-Mimran: I love the fashion during this period – effortless chic. A-line shift dresses, lots of white and cream.

CL: You’ve said “sexy is what you don’t see.” Can you elaborate?
KNM: I design so there is something left to the imagination. My design philosophy is a woman should wear her clothes – they shouldn’t wear her.  Clothes should not be a distraction.

CL: It’s difficult for Canadian designers to break into their own market, let alone the high-end U.S. segment like you have – what has been the key to your success?
KNM: Perseverance.

CL: What is your favourite fabric to work with right now?
KNM: I love power stretch, an incredibly resilient knit, and silk wool is an amazing vehicle for colour saturation.
