Your Visual Merchandising education is not complete unless you know the story of “Cynthia … the First Mannequin” cited here from the Retail Fix. For all the details in text and photos take a side trip there posthaste. But be sure to return to FixturesCloseUp for a few of my posts here on FixturesCloseUp. And since the first Mannequin was a woman, there is something sexist about all this. But I can’t quite put my finger on what.
