LIFE OF A MANNEQUIN
Like in real life, most mannequins begin their lives in a similar way, but each one takes a different path. All begin in factories, like the Lucky Human Mannequin Factory in Shenzhen, China, or Goldsmith in New York, each of which produces tens of thousands of mannequins a year.
Some live their lives in glamour on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue; others end their lives in a Beijing junkyard.
Unlike real life, they are all shaped the same, according to what society believes are the ideal proportions of the human body.
