The packed to the rafters runway fashion show for Pink Tartan during LG Fashion week did not dissapoint. Kim Newport-Mimran the designer of the Pink Tartan collection delivered a fashion forward look which is also wearable immediately off the runway.

Refreshing! There is something very satisfying in knowing that you can walk into Holt Renfrew or Saks or Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdales, the retailers who carry the Pink Tartan line, and actually buy something you saw at the show. Usually only about 20% of the fashions presented at the fashion week shows end up in the stores. Case in point? The Fashion Fantasy of: Alexander McQueen- marine medieval baroque fantasy, Balmain- gladiator leather clad woman meets mad max, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton- afro sporting NYC bike messenger meets urban hippie of the Paris and NYC shows. Are these clothes gorgeous, fun, exciting, thought provoking and hugely entertaining? Yes. Wearable? No. And sometimes a girl just needs something to wear!

The Pink Tartan collection was filled with daytime sequins, comfortable looking trousers and layered tops with shoulder details, trench coats and dresses. It was pretty and it was elegant. Our particular favorite look was of striped sequined tanks tops and snake skin print sequin mini skirts to wear as stand alone pieces. Take a look:
