Another big company used for tits windows displays mannequins that highlight a different dietary pattern, which only healthy we can not characterize it. The reason for the-famous-Primark, which did not hesitate to decorate their windows with mannequins whose rib bones were clearly visible.
The event got magnified when an indignant client staged in her Twitter account a picture of one of these dolls, commenting:
“Dear Primark, is it really necessary that these new mannequins have protruding ribs?She continued: “I’d just like to see mannequins in all different shapes and sizes in all stores rather than young girls thinking this is the only way to be.”
Primark removed from the windows displays the mannequins, but, once again, raised questions in relation to food standards that the world of fashion promotes, to young girls and women. Why to produced, at first place these dolls? Why the retail companies themselves want to show their merchandise at such thin/anorexic physical standards.
“Thank you for bringing this to our attention,” Primark tweeted. “We’ll speak to our team tomorrow. … “We are currently changing our window displays. The mannequin you describe will not be used in this way again,” the brand.
The issue is not unprecedented-not too long ago a La Perla boutique used a similar doll, which also caused controversy.
The famous lingerie brand reacted immediately when after receiving complaints from customers for a extremely thin mannequin in their window displaysof their boutique in Soho, New York.
The mannequin was too thin, with its ribs to protrude audible. One of their customers complained strongly about the standard that La Perla represent with this choice, and the response was immediate
“The mannequin photographed has been removed from the store and will not be used again by any La Perla boutique,” the label responded
