The Western Australian Museum will celebrate the 30 year career of influential WA fashion design icon Aurelio Costarella in a new exhibition, Aurelio Costarella - A 30 year retrospective, starting November 2, 2013.

In this video from the day of the official announcement, Aurelio explains what visitors can expect to see in the exhibition.


Starting from my very early career right through to the latest collection, so we have pieces that will be displayed throughout the Museum spanning that 30 years. And not just garments but also photographic work, there’ll be examples of the textile work that I’ve collaborated on with West Australian textile designers. So it’s very much, whilst it’s celebrating my work, it’s also a celebration of the collaborations for me over the years with West Australian models and hair and make-up artists, and photographers, and everyone else that I’ve worked with has come along on this journey with me.
