Last night, P&G Mom bloggers had the opportunity to watch the Washable Collection walk the runway at the Pink Tartan Spring 2014 Fashion Show.

Kimberley Newport-Mimran, the woman behind Canada’s iconic fashion brand, Pink Tartan, knows a thing or two about looking chic. As creative director and president for one of Canada’s most successful women’s wear lines and mom, Kim shares her style secrets for looking great on the go:

Timeless pieces are always in fashion
We’re all guilty of committing fashion crimes, but building a wardrobe founded in timeless pieces will ensure your look is always on point. By choosing pieces you can wear season after season, you’ll also increase the lifespan of your wardrobe. To keep my washable pieces looking their best, I launder with Tide Pods – an item every woman needs to have in her fabric care arsenal.

You don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality
As my collection evolves, I want to ensure I’m making clothing for the modern woman. The Washable Collection was developed for her. Each piece is made from quality washable fabrics that can be easily cared for. I recommend Tide Pods to care for all washable garments as they dissolve quickly and are easy to use.

Modern style is about care
Sometimes being chic is as simple as keeping your clothes looking crisp and clean. Imagine browsing your favourite shop if the clothing looked less than polished? It would alter the way you looked at the garment. I believe we should care for our clothing as you would other items you cherish. Using Tide Pods protects your favourite pieces and helps keep them looking their best
