Costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush, who worked closely with the King of Pop for more than 25 years, are bringing a collection of personal and concert tour outfits to the shopping complex on October 5 for the UK-leg of a worldwide tour.

Called ‘The Collection of Tompkins & Bush: Michael Jackson Wardrobe’, the exhibit will feature dozens of iconic costumes and fashion artefacts.

Highlights include one of Jackson’s infamous right-handed crystal covered gloves, the complete ‘Scream’ video outfit, a suit from the 1987 ‘Smooth Criminal’ video and the 30th Anniversary of Madison Square Garden’s Show’s illuminated helmet sported by the late singer.

Die-hard fans will also recognise a host of costumes from outfits worn to various awards ceremonies, music videos and Jackson’s legendary live performances including the ‘BAD’, ‘HIStory’, and ‘Dangerous’ tours.

Myf Ryan, general manager marketing UK, said: “It is an honour to be the exclusive UK host for such a unique exhibition. “In our first year, Westfield Stratford City attracted 47 million shoppers and we are increasingly becoming the destination of choice for exclusive events.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors and fans to get up close and personal with music and fashion history.”

‘The Collection of Tompkins & Bush: Michael Jackson Wardrobe’ will exhibit at The Getty Gallery, The Street, in Westfield, E20 from Friday October 5 to November 4.

Open seven days a week from 10am to 9am Monday to Friday, 9am to 9pm Saturdays, and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays, tickets are £10 from www.ticketmaster.co.uk from September 30.
