Homegrown fashion labels Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh to show at Toronto Fashion Week

Homegrown fashion labels Pink Tartan and Joe Fresh will show at Toronto Fashion Week and the designers behind the lines stopped by Breakfast Television Tuesday to discuss their collections.

Joe Mimran is the executive director at Joe Fresh and Kimberly Newport-Mimran is the president and head designer at Pink Tartan.

“We talk about colour at home,” Mimran said.

There’s also some friendly competition: Pink Tartan is a higher-priced line that sells at Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus, and Mimran said his wife will often tease that her pants fit better.

“The [ Joe Fresh] pant could have been higher in the rise,” she laughs.

Check out a sneak peek at their collections, and their full interview with Dina Pugliese in the video.

Fashion Week runs Monday to Friday at David Pecaut Square on King Street West. The Joe Fresh show will be held Wednesday at 9 p.m.  The Pink Tartan show is Thursday at 8 p.m.
