Mimco’s clear coats: an update

When I revealed my not-so-secret love of the clear plastic coats that went down Mimco’s VAMFF (Melbourne fashion festival) runway, it didn’t take long for other like-minded individuals to share their similar sentiments. And in fact all the questions that came my way centered on one thing: where to buy one?

So here’s an update: the designer of the plastic coats and dresses was actually Melbourne-based Kathryn Beker, who collaborated with Mimco to create the one-off show pieces. Kathryn tells us they won’t be available in store – but that she may be able to run a few limited edition pieces by request.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
