The Man Behind Michael Jackson’s Signature Style / Мужчина за фирменным стилем Майкла

by Luka Neskovic

The military style, the sparkling white glove, the black pants and the bunched-up socks: These were Michael Jackson’s legendary trademarks. And the team behind them? For 25 years, Michael Bush, together with his partner Dennis Tompkins, who passed away in 2011, created most of Michael Jackson’s personal and concert tour wardrobes, designing the costumes, apparel, shoes and accessories.

Some time ago, I spoke with Michael Bush, and we looked back at the golden era that lasted nearly a quarter of a century.

Luka Neskovic: You started working with Michael on the set of “Captain Eo,” right?

Michael Bush: Yes! I was first hired to start making the clothes for the cast: the dancers, the characters… and then when the clothes were made I was hired to dress him in his outfit. That was 1985 and then after that job I worked with him ever since.

LN: What was your first impression about him?

MLB: He was very shy. I think he was looking — because we were the same age — for someone that he can have fun with, so he was a very big practical joker. He liked to play jokes on people. He made me laugh, and I could make him laugh, and I think that was the biggest part of the job — to have a good time.

LN: What do you think about his style before you started working with him?

MLB: He was looking for his own style, because when I started with him he was still with his brothers, after the Victory tour, and he started going off on his own for the BAD tour. He was looking for something that fit his style of music, which in the Badalbum was very street music, very urban, and he was looking for something that fit the visual of the sound he was producing. So that’s what we were doing: a lot of police badges and a lot of street fashion.

LN: He was making a new image for a new album?

MLB: Yes, he did for every album. He changed a little bit for each album, especially for each tour, but it still had a very strong military influence.

LN: How performing would it affect him?

MLB: Michael loved to perform live as his was in his best. He always gave a 100 per cent. So he would lose a lot of water and weight as he was performing and it took a couple of days for him to recuperate to be able to do it again. He was very athletic, and very strong with what he did. Michael would dance every day to rehearse, to be strong enough to do the shows.

LN: Do you think that the second leg of the tour was better than the first one?

MLB: For me the best was when we started in Japan, because that was new, that was Michael’s first solo tour. I mean, for me it was the same… The fans in Germany, France, and England, for example, are very aggressive, but a lot of audiences in Asia are very quiet. Michael liked self-expression. He liked to have the audience to express how have happy they were when he would perform.

LN: At that time did you know about vitiligo, his skin disease that he was trying to cover?

MLB: No, Michael told me in ’87, in the middle of a Bad tour. It was very private for Michael, I mean his personal life. He was very afraid people would not like him for something that he could not control. He was very sensitive about people’s feelings.

LN: I think somewhere in Bad period he started wearing an armband?

MLB: He wore a little bit before, but it mostly became dominant in the “Smooth Criminal” video with the white suite, with the blue armband. That’s when it became pretty well established Michael’s trademark in his clothes. He also wore the one in the Pepsi commercial, a red one, but after “Smooth Criminal” there was pretty much an armband on everything.

LN: What was the meaning of that?

MLB: It was Michael’s. It was something that he wanted his audiences to identify with. If a jacket had an armband on, that it was Michael.

LN: And what was the meaning of a number 777?

MLB: Michael was the seventh child in his family and he was born in 1958. And if you had 1958 together you get 77. It didn’t mean anything. Michael was like: “If I do something like that, people would wonder what that means and they’ll remember it.” So it was like education, why it was there?

LN: And the CTE?
