Best Use of a Dress Form in a Window Display

Posted January 13, 2012 in Mannequins in Window Displays

If you are looking for a way to maximize how to use dress form to display a lot of clothing at one time, we found an excellent example from Spain. But first a quiz.

How many items do you think you could put on this dress form at once?  Would you a shirt, jacket and a tie for a maximum of 3? Well at store owner in Spain put a whopping 6 items on one dress form and the result is fabulous.

A tie, shirt, vest, jacket, coat and pants.  The same could be done with a woman’s clothing, just substitute a scarf or necklace for the tie.

These first photos are from the store Man 1924 in Madrid, the photos are taken by  Scott Schuman of The Satorialist.  I think the store owner does a great job of layering the clothes with different textures and fabrics.  I especially like how they display the pants, much simpler than pulling them on the bust-form.  Dressing bust-forms is far more difficult than mannequins, because you have to create the shape and volume so the clothes don’t lay flat.

I love the “hands in the pockets” makes the clothing look fluid instead of static. We sell a wide variety of dress forms at Mannequin Madness so that you can do the same in your windows.
