The Pink Tartan show, where even hockey players Luke Schenn and Tie Domi came to party
The Pink Tartan show was one of the hottest tickets at fashion week. The front row was packed with Toronto’s glitterati, like Weston family scion Galen Jr. with his wife, Alexandra, Stacey McKenzie, Dan Levy, club impresario Michael King, plastic surgeon Trevor Born, Shinan Govani, CBC-ers Zaib Shaikh of Little Mosque on the Prairie and Arlene Dickinson of Dragons’ Den and, perhaps strangest of all, Toronto Maple Leaf Luke Schenn and ex-Leaf Tie Domi. The show even pulled Jeanne Beker out of the woodwork; she had recently tweeted, “Wondering why I haven’t been tweeting from LGFW? It’s Passover, and sorry, but family rules over fashion!” Every available seat was filled and aisles were packed, creating what certainly must have been a fire code violation as the models started their walk. Kimberley Newport-Mimran put out a collection of tasteful knits, aviator caps (somehow, they worked), dresses and, of course, fur (used cleverly in full and flouncy skirts), which has been seen in many of the collections this season.
