Fashion is more than a strategic cut or delicate stitch! Designers use a mannequin to complete a design. Their label makes a statement, but the lady wearing it makes it her own! Some of the fashion you see in a runway show looks good, but I wonder if any of them could sit down in some of those dresses. But I digress from today’s post. I grew up with a mannequin in our house, my Dad was a furrier, and needed the “dummy” (model of the human body used for a variety of purposes) to create his works! The 1940-1950 mannequin was very different from those today but every mannequin serves it’s purpose.
