The iconic bra worn by Madonna during her Blonde Ambition tour is to go on show at an exhibition to celebrate French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier at London's Barbican next year.

Jean Paul Gaultier has worked with Madonna for over thirty years, and has designed many of her stage corsets.

The exhibition features over 140 couture and stage pieces from the designers personal collection and include outfits worn by Kylie Minogue, Bjork and Dita Von Teese.

Gaultier said he was super excited the show was coming to London due to the support the fashion world has showed him throughout his career and said the city has a special place in his heart:

The English were the first ones to come to my shows and appreciate my fashion.

I am super excited that the show is coming to London. If there is one place other than Paris that I should like to live in, it is London.

The exhibition, entitled The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From The Sidewalk To the Catwalk, is transferring from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in April next year.

The Barbican described the show as "an installation rather than a conventional fashion retrospective".

It will feature footage of catwalk presentations, concerts, music videos, films, dance performances and Gaultier's cult television show, Eurotrash.
