There she is standing in the window of your favorite department store. Chin up, vacant glance, hand on her hip. Her porcelain complexion, chilly, elegant, and inviting, so inviting that you’re enchanted to look past the price tag of the sparkling gown draped on her frame, and carry it like a precious pearl to the register. The mannequin, once a French moniker for model, has since taken on a much larger connotation. A lifeless piece of plastic she is not. By today’s definition she is the modern gatekeeper to our glamorous desires, she is the woman (or man) we want to be. No one understands this better than the artisans at “ABC Mannequins”, one of the retail industries leading mannequin manufacturers, holding the coveted prestige of a Made in Italy product, featured at retailers such as Hugo Boss, Moschino, Jil Sander, and Emilio Pucci, and events from Milan to Manhattan, Manhattan to Moscow, and soon San Francisco as well.
