A beautiful video about making manikins in the shapes of real, if less than perfect, people.

Very good post, thank you for sharing it. It would be great if there would be just normal (all type of) random people caught from street which would be next top models of a shop window.

That's exactly it - No One Is Perfect. That was a very moving video in so many ways. I was touched by the models themselves who were happy whereas those looking at the display felt uncomfortable. The message of this film reminds
me of a film "King of Hearts."

I think models and mannequin should come in a variety of shapes in sizes since we all do. And it is very difficult to suss out an outfit in the store if the mannequins shape is wildy different.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

I love this.....I love the age I'm at 50, the 40's where a liberating time for me, one of accepted myself flaws and all, I won't lie, sure I wish some parts of me were in better shape, but hey this body has brought fourth life and experiences a truly amazing thing, to have life moving within me, and I'd never trade! .. You realize what's truly important in life, your health and love ones! ...These are things going under a knife can never change! ...Love yourself, our uniqueness is what makes us beautiful and set us apart~~
