February is known as Black History month. Created to pay homage to the courageous men and women who fought for equality, paving the way for me and other black people to have the freedom to do what we love. Looking back at history there were some sharp dressing freedom fighters, inventors and entertainers amongst that time. Men who created their own signature styles that still exists today. Like the saying goes “only be imitated but never duplicated”, they did it with grace, dignity and most importantly their way!
Michael Jackson. What can I really say about the King of Pop or better yet where should I start. Michael Jackson the world’s biggest Pop icon, musical influence, entertainer, singer, dancer and the list goes on and on. Michael was introduced to the world as a member of the Jackson 5 in the mid 60’s. He started his solo career in the early 1970’s and never looked back. This man has countless titles and records under his belt leading up to his death and beyond. Michael was indeed eccentric in his own right but it absolutely worked for him. His style was like no other. Three things that he will always be known for, the rhinestone studded gloves, red zipper jacket and the iconic white socks paired with black shoes are all true MJ fashion. You have Usher, Ne-Yo, Justin Beiber & Timberlake imitating Michael’s, dance and clothing. There can only be one Michael Jackson and sadly he died June 25th 2009.
