This Nine News story from London covers the launch of a ground-breaking costume exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, featuring over 600 items from Kylie’s tours and music videos. 

The exhibition was curated by Arts Centre Melbourne and included items on loan from the Kylie Minoogue Collection held by the Australian Performing Arts Collection which showcases every phase of Kylie’s career, from dirty overalls worn by her Neighbours character Charlene, to the infamous gold hotpants from the ‘Spinning Around’ music video. 

Despite being questioned about her recent relationship break-up, an ongoing fascination with British and Australian media, Kylie is upbeat and excited about the exhibition and the idea of having the V&A Museum decked out with disco balls, glitter and loud pop music.  

According to the news report, the exhibition caused a stir among art critics in London who felt it was inappropriate for a venue that traditionally features more conservative exhibitions. 

The story was broadcast on 7 February 2007.
