The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) announced on Friday (5 July), that celebrated Paris-based Australian fashion designer Martin Grant has gifted more than 200 designs from his own archive to the gallery.

Grant is known globally for his reinterpretation of wardrobe classics, with a particular flair for sculptural form and volume.

The gift encompasses more than three decades of his career, with designs spanning from the early 1990s, when he established his label in Paris, through to his acclaimed autumn-winter 2019 collection, and more recent pieces. It also includes a large number of archival press clippings, runway footage, sketches and photographs.
