The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson



The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson is an engaging look at the intersection of music and fashion, in addition to an homage to Michael Jackson’s brilliant fusing of costume, personality, and performance to create his iconic image.

Through his music, dance, and fashion, Michael Jackson created a mystique that used to be unique to him and recognized as such all the way through the world. For five decades he mesmerized audiences—and for twenty-five of those years Michael Bush used to be there as Jackson’s designer, stylist, and friend, accompanying the King of Pop on his journey to becoming the King of Style. At the same time as reminiscent of the original Billie Jean, Beat It, and Thriller looks that put Jackson on the fashion map, The King of Style also traces their evolution over several decades. Jackson’s penchant for the military silhouette is explored in detail, at the side of the trade secrets in the back of the sequined glove and the fencing uniform that he, Michael Bush, and Dennis Tompkins reinvented to make stage magic. It used to be Bush who dressed Jackson for the final time, before he used to be buried. Dozens of garments were left unfinished by his shocking death. The legacy of Michael Jackson lives on. An artist like none other, he transformed the whole thing he touched—from the fabric of his clothes to his legions of fans all over the world.
