This will appeal to all MJ fans and those passionate about costume construction. I use it as a wonderful reference book to inspire my own customised jackets and am constantly amazed at the diversity found here. Michael loved to keep people guessing as it meant they were paying attention… through his stunning stage performances, and his costumes reflect this too. His kingly regalia is described as Liberace Gone to War which is a fantastic image in itself! The one off pieces such as the Dinner Jacket are delightfully explained: Michael presented them with riddles to solve and this one was in the form of late night phone calls asking what every person in the world could identify with! They then had the seemingly impossible task of finding ways to attach cutlery to the jacket.Read more ›
