    The exhibition in Fremantle is part of the WA Museum's strategy to take amazing experiences to surprising places while the New Museum for WA, due to open in 2020, is under development in Perth.

     

    The exhibition features the work of international designers such as Dolce and Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld and Australian designers Mark Burnett and Peter Morrissey.

     

    Kylie on Stage will open to the public at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle from Saturday February 16 and run until June 9 2019.  A series of exciting pop-up events is expected to complement the exhibition through a celebration of music and style.
