To say the U.S. apparel industry is big would be an understatement. According to Statista.com, Americans spend more than $225 billion on clothes and garment every year -- a number that's expected to grow even larger in the years to come. With such a large, ever-growing industry, apparel retailers are pulling out all the stops to win the hearts of consumers.
Mannequins In The Retail Apparel Industry
While traditional marketing and advertising plays a key role in the success of a retail apparel store, visual merchandising is equally as important. A well-made window display will entice shoppers to step into the store and check out its products. But a poor display will have the opposite effect, sending shoppers out the door and headed to a competitor's store. You can improve the effectiveness of your displays, however, by using mannequins.
While mannequins are used in a variety of applications and industries (e.g. movie props, tailors, museums, seamstress, etc.), they are particularly important in the retail apparel industry. Retailers can use them to display product in a more meaningful and relatable manner, which subsequently boosts sales. Displaying a shirt or garment on a mannequin, as opposed to hanging it on a rack, allows shoppers to see exactly how the item looks on the human body.
