Kimberley Newport-Mimran

President & Design Director Pink Tartan

Kimberley Newport-Mimran, President and Design Director 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 sportswear. This Canadian-born line sits comfortably on the racks at Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstroms, Holt Renfrew and The Hudson’s Bay Company as well as specialty stores across North America, Central America, Middle East and Europe. After graduating from a fashion merchandising and manufacturing management program, Newport-Mimran found herself 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.

“I get my fashion magazines out and I sit and absorb and get inspired.”
