Kylie gives her gear to the people

| |

The Performing Arts Museum at the Arts Centre Melbourne has once again scored a treasure trove of costumes from one its home town showbiz icons. Kylie Minogue has donated  20 costumes to the museum (comprising more than 60 items including shoes, head dresses and accessories) including outfits worn during the X2008 Tour — designed by Jean Paul Gaultier and a number designed by Dolce & Gabbana for her Aphrodite: Les Folies Tour 2011.
But Kylie’s Melbourne roots are not forgotten witth the inclusion of the  jacket she wore in 1988 for her Locomotion film clip taped in a humble Collingwood studio and the costumes worn in videos for Better Than Today, All the Lovers and Get Outta My Way.
The museum now has 1000 pieces of her outerwear and underwear which she began donating in 1991. One of the donated costumes — a red silk dress designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for the ‘X2008’ tour  is now on display in Arts Centre Melbourne’s Smorgon Family Plaza for the next two weeks.
