The star formerly known as the Singing Budgie features in a colourful free exhibition at Geelong Gallery until 4 March.
Kylie on Stage features “magical moments” from the concerts of perhaps Australia’s greatest international pop star.
“I’m excited for fans to get up close and personal with my costumes and to get a glimpse behind the curtain to see some of the design process,” Kylie Minogue said.
Drawn from her spectacular stage wardrobe held at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection, items on display date back from 1989 through to recent tours such as Kylie Aphrodite les Follies in 2011.
Featured designers within the world-first exhibition include Dolce and Gabbana, John Galliano, Julien Macdonald, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier as well as local designers including Peter Morrissey and Mark Burnett.
Geelong Gallery boss Jason Smith is chuffed to host the exhibition.
“We are genuinely excited to present Kylie on Stage at Geelong Gallery over the popular summer period,” he said.
“We expect to welcome thousands of people to view the truly extraordinary design and artistry involved in the making of Kylie’s costumes.
“The gallery has a strong commitment to diverse art forms, including a close relationship with the performing arts through our cultural precinct neighbour GPAC (Geelong Performing Arts Centre), which routinely presents the work of leading companies, actors and musicians.
“We are thrilled to be introducing Kylie’s wardrobe to our region. It is a stunning collection.”
