I've bought a lot of Michael Jackson books over the years, but this one is right up there in the top five imho, I felt close to Michael reading it but not in an intrusive way, I felt like I was along for the trip not just watching the trip happen.
It's written so well in amazing detail, and the photographs of Michael's clothes are breathtaking, you can see the exquisite detail of the stitching and decoration. Oh to have those skills!
The stories about Michael's little foibles made me giggle, he was a demanding little toad but wow he got the best from his friends because of his drive and determination that they, as well as he, were perfectionists.
It's clear to see that these guys respected and loved each other dearly, I'm so glad I got this book, if you haven't yet and you have the cash - get it - you won't regret it.
The little note to the fans at the end of the acknowledgments section made me sob like a baby, it's beautiful - thank you Michael Bush, so hard for you to lose your partner as well as Michael too it must have been hard to write the book at all at times.
Now I'm gonna read it again.
An excellent book written by the man who brought Michaels ideas of style, fashion and originality to life. Wonderful insight into the tricks used by MLB and MJJ to make the stage come to life with the colours, materials and life of the clothes. An interesting history of the truly ground-breaking techniques used on tour and in public to make the clothes maketh the man.
Some truly heart-warming insights into the way MJ shared his ideas - making everything a challenge with a win- win at the end of the game... ANd a bonus of the history and updates or changes to costume throughout MJs career - Billie Jean jacket / Thriller jacket! Also an insight into where some of these probably priceless artifacts are now.
A MUST for anyone with interest in MJ, Design, Fashion, Music and generally beautiful clothes!
I think this book will make everybody happy who is interested in fashion ,and,or Michael Jackson
It shows all the outfits that we all remember such as The History gold outfit, the dangerous suit, 1993 Grammy awards jacket and many more, it also describes what work went into each outfit and how long they took to reach the final garment.
Whether your fan or not you will enjoy this book, just looking through pages and pages of stunning outfits of MJ's was AMAZING. Towards the end of the book it also shows some of the gorgeous outfits that were being prepared for what would have been Michael's This is it tour. The book is alot bigger than i expected to.
Thankyou Mr Bush you have done MJ proud. Definitely one of my favourite MJ books.
