Michael Jackson's Influene in the Fashion World

No one loved sequins, studs, glitz and glitter more than Michael Jackson, not even Maury nor I. Apart from being a music legend, he was extremely influential in the fashion world. Just take a look at Christophe Decarnin's Balmain collections. From Nicholas Ghesquiere at Balenciaga to Ricardo Tisci at Givenchy, the influence is palpable.

Michael set the trend way before Christophe.

Les Chiffoniers made wicked sequined pieces but Jackson wore them first.

    I really love this post, though, because you draw such concrete parallels between his interminably fabulous style and high fashion! Great job [and I love your tribute outfit!]!

  13. Wow, I love your style homage to the great king. I'm so saddened and shocked by his death. It still somehow doesn't seem real.
