Mannequins are one of the important things you should buy if you own or work in a fashion house. They are lifelike and used for a number of purposes. One, they are used to display clothing items. Have a fashion house? You definitely want to showcase what you have to the world to attract customers. This cannot be done when the items are folded somewhere and that’s one of the reasons why you need a mannequin. This can be used whether you’re an offline vendor or an online vendor. Mannequins are also used to fit clothes or test the fitting of clothes.
Mannequins come in different types. The first major types of mannequins are female and male mannequins. As there aren’t only just clothes for a particular gender, there is a need for this difference. You should buy them based on the kind of fashion house you run or work for. Do you work for a fashion house that sells only male wears or that sells only female wears or that does both? There are also children mannequins which are the sizes of children; they are also male and female kid mannequins. While some mannequins are of full length and stature to fit the size of an adult, some only showcase the upper part of the body. The former are suitable for displaying tops and trousers or blouses and skirts and dresses while the latter are appropriate for t-shirts, shirts or blouses. Some are made of plastic and some are made of wood. You should decide which to buy based on the essence of usage; if you’re going to be largely mobile, you’re advised to buy a plastic mannequin because it is lighter in weight than a wooden one. They also come in different colours. Asides full-stature maniks, there are those that are for other parts of the body such as the wrist, the feet and the neck.
