Michael Jackson Turns Clothing Designer!

PER/ Fame

Michael Jackson hasn’t had a hit in a while, but instead of working on his next platinum album, he’s turning his eye towards fashion! The King of Pop has teamed up with Ed Hardy designer — and pal — Christian Audigier to launch a new line this fall. Audigier tells PEOPLE of the collaboration, “It’s the merging of the King of Pop with the king of fashion. Something explosive is going to happen.” As for Kitson owner Fraser Ross, who has already committed to carrying the line exclusively at launch, he tells PEOPLE that he has faith in the new line because “Michael Jackson is an international pop icon who has had a huge following throughout his career. I think people will think it’s hip to wear his line. Through all his ups and downs people still love him. He still has a huge fan base.” Tell us: Will you wear Michael Jackson’s new clothing line?

Oh Michael, I don’t think many people will be interested in buying your taste in clothing. Your gift is music and I would like to see you continue to pursue this. You definitely are not a fashion designer. Commit to your album and forget clothing. Please!
I don’t suppose he’ll read this post, but I’m just putting out the energy.

Does Audigier have a clue that Jackson is washed up? He is such a has been and has now become one of those shameful embarassments for the excess of the eighties. Why doesn’t Audigier call up Milli Vanilli and Boy George to add to the collection?

people do you have any idea what you are saying, michael jackson has fation. If you think about it most people copy his style, celebreties, designers, and a lot of people. The people who are saying ew, you are wrong big time. Michael if I had money i would buy anything you make. People trust me, his styles are going to be so cool that even the celebreties are gonna wear his clothes, thay are ganna be like, “I am wearing michael jackson’s designes. I think you shoul think before you talk. Ok little ignorents
