ELLE Canada talks about love & romance with three of Canada's most stylish and successful couples.
Joseph Mirmran & Kimberley Newport-Mimran
Meet Joe: Creative director of Joe Fresh, which grows this spring to include Ottawa and Victoria locations plus some 700 Joe Fresh shops in JC Penny across the United States.
Meet Kim: President and head designer of Pink Tartan, the country's go-to label for ladylike chic.
Together: 14 years; married for 12.
K: "We are booked four to six months ahead - if we want to do a dinner, it's on the calendar."
J: "The most important thing is making sure that our daughter [Jacqueline, 11] gets all of our love and attention."
J: "When we're in New York for work, it's just the two of us. We probably share more date nights than most couples."
K: "We love food, a great atmosphere, a beautiful bottle of wine. We're going to Paris soon, and we're working on reservations for somewhere fabulous."
J: "We love fashion, we love to dress up, we love to have fun. We have quite a charmed life."
J: "When Kim comes out of the closet in the morning, it's always a â€˜ta-da!' That's a real charge. Like, â€˜Oh, you did a whole tan-and-white story.' It's like having a built-in muse."
K: "When I've finished a collection, I always walk Joe through it. With a lot of design, there's a merchandising aspect to how it all comes together. He's been a great mentor for me."
K: "We mostly call each other â€˜honey,' right? [Laughs] Sometimes I call him â€˜Joe Fresh' or â€˜Mr. Fresh.'"
J :[Laughs] "I call her â€˜Kimmy.' No â€˜loverpuss' or anything like that.
