Christmas comes early for Michael Jackson fans in Las Vegas.

At 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 14, Michael Bush, longtime costume designer and personal friend of Jackson, will be signing copies of his new book “The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson” at Planet Hollywood Restaurant.

In addition to meeting Bush and getting an autographed edition of the book, fans can see a selection of Jackson’s costume, shoes and accessories. Bush, together with his partner Dennis Tompkins, was responsible for Jackson’s costumes worn during the international Bad, Dangerous and HIStory tours. He also worked on unique pieces for Neverland.

The book explores the original Billie Jean, Beat It, and Thriller looks that put Jackson on the fashion map, traces their evolution over several decades and examines the military silhouette that Jackson favored. Bush also shares personal insights into the costume designs and anecdotes about working with Michael Jackson.

“Michael Jackson was the world’s greatest entertainer. His fashion sense and ideas of design took me on an extraordinary journey for almost 25 years,” Bush said. “There was nothing we couldn’t do and Michael was full of surprises. We¬†traveled¬†the world together during Michael’s three solo tours and created designs and fashions that have become iconic.”

“Michael loved military style, Egyptian styles and the image of royalty as you can see in many of his most famous costumes and personal outfits. When we designed, we designed for show time, no matter what the occasion. When Michael was alive he always talked about us doing a book like this. My hope is that by producing ‘King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson,’ fans and fashion enthusiasts around the world can now share in the excitement and surprises I was able to live every day working with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.”

The signing will be held at 4 p.m. at Planet Hollywood Restaurant, 3rd floor of The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
