Bush recently completed a European book signing tour where fans from London, Rome, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen stood in line to get their first copy of the book and meet and greet Michael Bush.
“Michael Jackson was the world’s greatest entertainer. His fashion sense and ideas of design took me on an extraordinary journey for almost 25 years. There was nothing we couldn’t do and Michael was full of surprises. We travelled the world together during Michael’s three solo tours and created designs and fashions that have become iconic. I always say I educated Michael and he educated me through the process,” said author and designer Michael Bush. “Michael loved military style, Egyptian styles and the image of royalty as you can see in many of his most famous costumes and personal outfits. When we designed, we designed for show time, no matter what the occasion. When Michael was alive he always talked about us doing a book like this. My hope is that by producing King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson, fans and fashion enthusiasts around the world can now share in the excitement and surprises I was able to live every day working with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.”
Celebrities and fashion luminaries provided endorsements including famous London milliner Phillip Treacy and GRAMMY award winning artist Celine Dion.
