TRENDS IN STORE MANNEQUINS: News from Paris and London

Returned recently from shopping in London and Paris. If you’ve been joining my webinars on the trends I saw at retail, you know that I do a bit on visual merchandising, display ideas that catch my eye. Something I always notice are the store mannequins and how well and differently Europe seems to use them as a fashion tool. I’ve reported on hair, poses, face, themes, attitude–well, this time all I could fix on were necks! I know they’ve evolved from last year, and the new mannequins now have long, alien necks, are super skinny and tall, and take a look below for what may be the next generation of mannequins………….
