Trend report: Pink Tartan at Toronto Fashion Week

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Kimberley Newport-Mimran's fall/winter 2013 collection stuck to Pink Tartan's signature retro style. Bold-colour shift dresses, elbow-length leather gloves, fur collars and abstract floral prints found on '50s silhouettes dominated the runway.

It was a little more sexy and – dare I say – fierce.

Essie Canada's lead nail artist,  Rita Remark, created a sleek and sophisticated manicure for the Pink Tartan models. Two coats of Essie Nail Polish in Sand Tropez were swiped on almond-shaped nails, followed by one coat of Essie's Matte About You, creating a contemporary nude nail look.
