Fascination with Mannequins

Filed under: Mannequins — John Ronzel @ 9:44 am

Mannequins are a strange thing, some people are enchanted by them whilst others have a distinct dislike for them claiming they are weird and spooky. Who would like to be in a semi lit room full of mannequins. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is actually a phobia about the fear of mannequins.

The actual split is hard to quantify but I would guess to say that more people find them interesting than the latter.

Why this fascination? I think there are various reasons. Firstly because a mannequin approximates the ideal human form for displaying clothes, clothes always look good on a mannequin, there is a touch of envy as to the body shape, it is the ultimate dream for most to have the perfect height & proportions of a mannequin. How many people have actually looked at a naked mannequin and thought I wish I had that body. But that’s the thing, it is the epitome of a human form – absolute perfection.

Secondly is it also the macabre fascination of a naked mannequin with its various components ie legs and arms which resemble a dismembered body. The realism of the body parts is often a little too real.

Thirdly mannequins are more often than not expressionless and without soul, unlike dolls which children have an affinity with and are able to establish a bond with by personifying them. Is it this lack of expression why some people find them spooky and they can’t relate to them because they can be somewhat zombie like.

In the end though, mannequins are just a visual merchandising instrument designed to make you take notice of the window or store and hopefully draw you in. They can personalise the store by becoming a specific image for their product and they can add interest and theatre to the window shopper.

I bet all the girls who set their eyes on this article are dying to read it all up and know what the dresses are that they must have! It’s a fact that most girls love to dress up, so let’s check whether we have the dress or not?

 1. The Essential: The LBD, or little black dress is every woman’s must have. Perfect anywhere at any occasion, choose one that has night and day versatility with a classic, flattering neckline.

2. The Bright Side: With spring in session and summer on the way, a colorful cocktail dress is perfect for any of your party needs! Solid colors, neon brights, and even pretty pastels offer a fresh, fashionable twist on any classic dress. Make sure your colorful shift is comfortable and flowy, and look for fabrics like silk and chiffon that can be dressed up for nighttime! I do have this one in my closet!

3. The Show Stopper: You never know when you’ll receive a last minute event invitation, and you want to be ready! Keeping a black tie dress in your closet is a smart move. It makes you look chic and classy. Don’t forget sexy too!

4. The Fun Piece: A sparkly dress is the perfect way to add versatile glamour to your wardrobe. Look for a dress you can throw a blazer over for a fun night out, or put tights under when the weather is cold. Not so sure if I should go with this one, but they gave an alternative if a sparkling dress might come off as too intimidating you can settle with is to go for a bold print. Small, subtle prints can be worn to the office, flatter every body type, and are a great break from the everyday pantsuit. Larger prints are better for nighttime!

5. The Great Length: Maxi dresses are a go-to piece for any occasion. Whether you’re running errands during the day or heading to a barbeque at night, the maxi dress looks chic anywhere.

So these are the 5 MUST HAVE DRESSES !

Many (un)Happy Returns

Filed under: Displays,Fashion,Mannequins,Marketing — eve @ 10:11 am

There are various of reasons why you want to return something you purchased online. Some of them are defective products, not the right size and some not what you really want.

As I have mentioned Bad fit is a common problem in online apparel sales, perhaps the main reason that shopping for clothes online hasn’t taken off in the same way that shopping for everything else has. Most successful online apparel retailers suffer extreme high rates of returned merchandise. Customers return approximately 35 percent of the shoes purchased from online stores, for instance, and the store’s best customers (those who spend the most money) return half of what they buy.

This suggests that a lot of people are buying stuff to try it on and send it back. Some of the returns are likely a matter of taste — those sandals don’t look as good on your feet as they did on your laptop — but many retailers say poor fit is undeniably their biggest headache.

The good news is technology created something called True Fit this machine can scan the body figure of the customer so that the virtual store can derive the exact fit of the buyer.

Still even if it’s pretty convenient to buy everything online, it’s definitely better to buy what you need personally especially when it comes to any clothing apparel.

For boutique and store managers- What do you think is the best way to attract costumers offline when it comes to outfits? Just like any other things presentation of the products really count not just offline but online too. Yes maybe it’s OK to just use hangers for presenting your clothes but it definitely have a different impact when you use Mannequins!!!

So don’t waste your time and get the best mannequins display for your store check this out -http://mannequinsrus.net/display-mannequins/ !!!
