Michael Jackson gives helping hand to launch of Bath in Fashion
King of pop Michael Jackson had a hand in the launch of the Bath in Fashion festival today.
Michael Bush, costume designer to the singer for 25 years and the creative mind behind the star’s iconic white glove, was in the city to help publicise next year’s festival.
Mr Bush brought with him several famous military-style jackets worn by Jackson as well as the glove.
Speaking at the launch he said: “This is what England is supposed to be to us Americans, the architecture, the culture - and the rain.”

He explained many of the outfits were a collaboration between the two men.
“We’d sit down side by side with one tablet, two pencils and one eraser. I would draw, he would erase, he would draw and I would erase - that left was mine, that right was his, but we worked well together.”
Mr Bush will return to the city next year to speak at Bath in Fashion 2013, which will run from April 15 to 21.
Now in its fourth year, the festival will also include an exhibition of work by fashion photographer Norman Parkinson, a series of catwalk shows staged by London Fashion Week producer John Walford and a pop-up manufacturing display at which passers-by will be able to watch bags made.
Sarah Mansfield, chairman of the festival and director of the Milsom Place centre, said Bath in Fashion was putting the city on the map.
She said: “Bath in Fashion is the most amazing experience of partnering in a city you can find.”
She added: “Bath is a stylish, elegant and fashionable city with big brands, boutiques and independents and it’s logical with an event like this to pull all of that together.”
