Arguably Western Australia’s most successful designer, Aurelio Costarella has enjoyed a glittering career spanning 30 years. To celebrate his success and longevity, the Western Australian Museum is to host Aurelio Costarella: A 30 Year Retrospective from 2 November 2013.
Representing his career and diverse collaborations, thirty exhibits including garments, photographs and rare footage are showcased throughout the Museum. Unlike traditional exhibitions, each piece is integrated with other Museum displays, so expect to see gorgeous gowns draped artfully among dinosaur skeletons and perched on top of antique showcases.
Aurelio Costarella is one of only a handful of designers to not only have survived, but thrived, through three decades in the Australian fashion industry. Visit www.museum.wa.gov.au for more information.
