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.
