Michael Blosil loved fashion and his mother Marie Osmond supported his passion. At the time of his suicide Friday, Michael was studying for a degree in Apparel Manufacturing with his mother dreaming they might one day work together.
"Marie was totally behind Michael," a source close to the singer tells RadarOnline.com. "She was helping him any way she should with his fashion ambitions."
Michael was a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. The premiere fashion school on the West Coast, it was the setting for Season 6 of Project Runway. The Los Angeles campus is not far from the apartment building from which Michael leapt to his death.

But before that tragic turn, Marie had thought Michael might one day work for one of her companies, the source adds. "She has her lines of jewelry, handbags and other accessories, all of which are successful. She never pushed Michael to work with her but if he'd wanted to get involved with the manufacturing side of fashion business, the door was open to him."
An autopsy on Michael is scheduled for Sunday in Los Angeles. It is expected Michael's remains will be returned to Utah where the entire Osmond family will gather for his funeral.
