Mannequin is the movement of contoured lines on the body. Our Looks define the beautiful lines of a woman by combining fine tailoring and elegant crepe fabrics that move with the body. We empower the modern woman in a timeless silhouette.
Timeless Tailored Separates
The Deco Collection is a timeless mix of fine tailored separates. Our garments create a modern contoured fit close to the body. The fit was engineered for comfort and movement. I designed this collection to be worn through Fall and Spring. Our garments are interchangeable by color and style. Create your own look for the occasion and season. Wear our tailored separates to the office, a gala, or a night on the town. Future collections will mix with the current. Add to your wardrobe and create new timeless looks with Mannequin's tailored separates.
Fabrics and Versatility
Our fabric is an elegant hi-tech Poly crepe from Italy. The lite to medium weight wrinkle resistant crepe is wearable thru fall and spring. There is a bit of stretch in the crossgrain for fit and comfort. The color tones create a timeless versatile style to mix with your existing wardrobe. We also offer all garments in a beautiful Silk crepe with a bit of stretch in the crossgrain. All of our garments are made in New York. Mannequin is dedicated to fit, exceptional quality, comfort, and timeless innovative design.
After many years of market research watching the fashion industry change, I came up with my Idea for a mini wardrobe of interchangeable tailored separates. I saw a missing link in the women’s ready to wear market. Elegant fashion was not easily accessible to career women without a luxury price tag. There was nice brand name clothing but not "Fashion." Fashion was something everyone loved to go look at and touch in expensive designer boutiques. I wanted to create a collection of timeless garments that could be worn more times of the year. The idea was to offer high quality refined interchangeable separates that women could also mix and match with there existing wardrobe and future collections. Today we live in a throw away society. I wanted to offer elegant garments that stood the test of time. This would eliminate the need for fast fashion. While fashion was always about whats next, with Mannequin there is no such thing as "thats so last season." When you find an Yves Saint Laurent jacket at a vintage boutique its always in fashion. The look never goes out of style with its classic elegant lines because its timeless.
In Spring of 2014, I began sketching my ideas. I drew over 130 looks from which I created my timeless separates. After five years of pattern development and endless long hours fitting, cutting and recutting I finished my collection and patterns for production. All of my patterns and original pieces I made myself. Attention to even the smallest details is everything. All of our production is done at the best manufacturer in Manhattan. High end women's fashion was never cheap to make, with fabric and manufacturing costs rising. We decided to cut out expensive PR agencies and promote ourselves. Since we are a very small designer brand doing most of the work ourselves, we are able to bring you fashion at almost half the cost of high end brands.
