secret life of mannequins

i never really thought about who makes mannequins,  you just take them for granted, they are there in shop windows displaying clothes of all types – but i found it fascinating when i went to see the showrooms of proportion.   my very talented friend Tanya is the creative director and she designs the most influential and individual forms – mannequins for individual designers, one off models, mannequins for mass production and a la carte designs for specific projects.  so if ever you need a mannequin, you must get to proportion.  they also create the  mannequins for lots of the major galleries and shows, such as the David Bowie and current Alexander McQueen show.
