Why use mannequins?

Window mannequins are used to create attractive store fronts and gain the attention of passers-by. Used in conjunction with store product lines and display discount signs, window mannequins improve sales and in-store foot traffic by being front-line customer acquisition tools.

One of the first principles of store management is having a successful visual merchandising strategy and window mannequins form the foundation of almost any store's arsenal of closing techniques. See this guide for purchasing a mannequin from the Mannequin Factory (based in Keighley, UK).

Types of Window Mannequins

No matter what type of store you run, whether it's a coffee shop or a hair-dressing salon, window mannequins are an important part of new customer acquisition.

There are many styles of window mannequins, including:

  • Wireframe
  • Glossy
  • Fiberglass/Plastic/Metal/Fabric
  • Realistic
  • Featureless - for example no head or no arms
  • Comic
  • Child or Adult
  • Male or Female

Mannequins for women's clothing usually have an elegant look and feel. Glossy mannequins are futuristic and having a sporting feel, so are suited to sports shops and trendy shops. Wireframe mannequins have the advantage of being see-through - however may not be as sturdy as traditional armature based mannequins. The armature is the underlying skin of the mannequin. Realistic mannequins can be used in more scenarios, although they may look intimidating and might scare young children and teens. Featureless or formless mannequins have missing features, for example, missing limbs, or no facial features.

One goal of window display design is to create an aspirational goal for the onlooker. The passer-by that gives an extra look might sense they are missing something or want to put themselves in the clothing worn by the mannequin. This stimulates desire for the shopper to spend money.
