Wooden Fashion Mannequin




I first saw a copy of this image at Den of Angels, but couldn't find it again later when I wanted to look at it, so I am posting it here so I can find it again. This is a photo of French fashion designer Madeline Vionnet (1876-1975), draping a fully articulated wooden fashion mannequin, c.1923, in her studio.






This is another photo of her fashion mannequin, which she used to design clothing using the draping technique.






This is a fully articulated wooden doll, made in Germany c.1520.
