Kimberley Newport-Mimran, President and Head Designer of Pink Tartan, epitomizes a sense of chic that translates to the womenswear brand that she created in 2002. Pink Tartan has developed into a global label known for understated luxury and sophisticated ready-towear. This Canadian-born line is available at Nordstroms, Holt Renfrew and The Hudson’s Bay Company, as well as specialty boutiques across North America and abroad.
After graduating from a fashion merchandising and manufacturing management program, Newport-Mimran began her career in the buying office at The Hudson’s Bay Company. She then applied her expertise to the iconic Canadian label Club Monaco, where she developed a keen understanding of structure and tailoring. Upon her move to Caban, Newport-Mimran honed her knowledge of fabrics and luxury design.
With this compilation of experience, Newport-Mimran went on to found Pink Tartan. With the launch of her flagship store, Pink Tartan — A Lifestyle Concept in 2010, all the facets of Newport-Mimran’s life and work came together. Pink Tartan’s concept shop houses a selection of art, fashion, home and accessories curated by Kim. Another milestone was the launch of Newport-Mimran’s second Pink Tartan concept shop in Bayview Village in 2012.
