Kylie's costumes on show
This Seven News story covers the launch of an exhibition at the Arts Centre Melbourne showcasing Kylie’s tour fashions from 1989 to 2016.
Kylie travelled home to Melbourne from the UK to launch the exhibition in September 2016, which featured a selection of costumes and memorabilia chosen from more than 800 items from Kylie’s collection.
Some of the fashion industry’s most famous designers are represented in the exhibition, including Dolce & Gabbana and Galliano, plus local designer Peter Morrissey. They have all dressed Kylie for concert tours.
Costumes from all her iconic concert tours including Showgirl and Aphrodite were on show, but Kylie singles out the ‘Blue Showgirl’ costume as one of her most loved.
In her speech launching the exhibition, Kylie jokes about being a hoarder, admitting to being just like anyone else who stores stuff in their parents' attic!
It’s not the first time her tour fashions have been on display to the public. In 2007, the V&A Museum in London held a similar exhibition.
