Cher to Reunite with Designer Bob Mackie for Upcoming World Tour
After a brief seperation, it appears that superstar Cher and her long-time costume designer Bob Mackie will reunite for her upcoming 'Dressed to Kill' World Tour.
Mackie's rep confirmed the news to the New York Post's Page Six yesterday, commenting, "We can confirm that [he] is teaming up with Cher for the second leg of her 'Dressed to Kill' tour. With new fall shows being added to the tour schedule, Mr. Mackie is able to dedicate time to creating a few spectacular designs for the show."
Back in March, the pair had a falling-out, which lead Mackie to back out of designing Cher's tour costumes. At the time, the designer explained, "There simply was not enough time to give this wonderful project the proper amount of care and attention it deserves."
Today, Cher turned to Twitter to share the good news that she will once again be working with Mackie: "Just got home from #BobMackie We are working on NEW COSTUMES ??OMG ???? WHAT A GENIUS. New Opening & TBT Costumes R Seriously Out Of Control!"
According to the report, Mackie's designs will be ready to go just in time for Cher's New York dates this September. Until that time, Cher will also continue to don fashsions by London-based designer Hugh Durrant, who filled in for Mackie in recent months.
