This is my series devoted to the real life models who became Rootstein mannequins.
This is Margaret Tapping an African American mannequin that Rootstein produced around 1996.
Margaret was one of a handful of dark brown skin African American mannequins that Rootstein produced. Most of the time, the African American mannequins were light skinned, even if they were brown skinned in real life.
Margaret was part of the ground breaking Boy/Girl series which featured androgynous looking mannequins. Rootstein was one of the first companies to release such gender/bender mannequins.
