The world is stil in mourning today as the King of Pop, Michael Jackson died Thursday afternoon, 25th June, 2009. CelebrityClothingLine salutes the icon by bringing upon you, the Michael Jacson Fashion Retrospect.
Posing in his Afro, Michael was already a stylish young man back in the seventies. As he separates from The Jacksons Five to pursue his solo career, he started developing his own style.
After the release of “Off The Wall” in 1979, Michael Jackson ushered in the Thriller age. The swagger was a signature jacket which he made famous from his music video along with the Thriller dance moves. PVC, faux leather and brilliant red were the key catchphrase when referring to the jackets.
Michael entered the “Bad” years and he polished his performances as well as his costumes, to add dramatic touches to his concerts. Aside from the dramatic costumes, he introduced some attires that are easily associated with him in the future: the fedora, the arm band and the loose white shirt.
Michael’s fascination with embellishments on his show attire peaked in the “Dangerous” years, as the album blown every chart in the world. Probably a token of his success, Michael Jackson started to gleam and shine in his glory with many gold, military style, which he wore to lead legions of fans around the world to the top of his career.
