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.
