Thanks Kylie Image

By Louis Blake

One of Melbourne’s favourite daughters, Kylie Minogue, has made an extremely generous donation to our already incredible arts and culture landscape.

The singer met with Premier Daniel Andrews and the Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley last month to hand over a selection of 20 costumes from her stage shows and music video clips.

This collection features outfits designed by the great Jean Claude Gaultier for Minogue’s X2008 tour as well as the jacket that she wore in her debut music video for the song that launched her career, 1988’s Locomotion.   

The pieces have been given to the to the Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection and will join close to 1000 other pieces that Minogue has already gifted to the Arts Centre.

The Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection is the largest collection of performing arts memorabilia in Australia. Founded in 1975, the collection encompasses the history of circus, dance, music, opera, and theatre.     

Tom Harley, president of the Victorian Arts Centre Trust, said he was “absolutely thrilled” by the generous gift and that the “next step is to share this extraordinary collection of treasures with the wider community”.
