Bush & Tompkins dress Michael Jackson for his courtroom appearances

May '05
dapper dressed michael jackson has to thank designers michael bush and dennis tompkins for his designer appearance in court, each day.

bush is up and early at 3.00 am each day, and drives to neverland ranch from his home studio in los feliz, on the 101 freeway to dress the dancing and singing legend between 6 and 7 am.

all he hears from the singer is a "thank you" and a good-bye hug in return as they part.

now, it is back to work with tompkins putting finishing touches for the next day's dress.

the designer duo have created famous war - torn black shirt and pants he wore in the "man in the mirror" video and the rhinestone-encrusted american flag jacket that he appeared in a washington, dc charity concert for the september 11 victims.

since february, the bush and tompkins have designed for jackson's appearance in a santa maria courtroom.

as for their practice in perfection, the duo say they read practically every magazine in the world including men's, women's, children's, interior design, just about anything or study anything else with visual images.

they spread themselves on the floor and seek fresh ideas including suggestions from jackson.

they have elizabeth taylor, britney spears spears and denzel washington's wife, pauletta for clients.

nonetheless for the fashion designers bush and tompkins, michael will surely not be an enigma as others think he is, dressing the king of pop to the hilt,forfor his day out in the court, each day!
