Michael Bush on Michael Jackson

Hi all,

Another post from Bath in Fashion. Michael Bush is the genius behind the amazing costumes that Michael Jackson wore when on stage. He gave a talk at the guildhall which was very intersting. He told us what it was like to work with Jackson, and the lengths that he would go to in order to make the best possible costumes for him. 
He has a book out which has lots of amazing photographs of the costumes, spanning many years. Michael Jackson had the tendency to give away his outfits after concerts, so Bush began photographing them before they were worn to capture them. 

The jacket he was wearing was jaw dropping. It was covered in rhinestones forming multiple Jackson faces. He said it was his form of tatoo. I also believe that he said it was being auctioned off, and the proceeds would be going to a children's charity.

There was a little set up on the stage with some of the costume pieces. Michael Jackson was a big fan of the military look!

That concludes the Bath in Fashion for 2013.
Looking forward to next years!
