You perhaps suspected as much

The artist currently known as Dawn Summers reveals a deep, dark secret about women’s-wear storefronts:

A few years ago, my friend Lola and I went into an Anne Klein and we discovered that the stores basically paste clothes to the mannequins and then pin them shut in ways no human being would ever do, except in movies about the future where everyone is wearing form fitting jumpsuits.

Or maybe in Mannequin, since presumably Kim Cattrall didn’t worry about such things.

Then again, once your Life Clock turns black, it presumably doesn’t matter anymore.

    Forms in jumpsuits?
    These liberals will do anything to dress up bureaucracy.

    This is also often true with garments featured in magazines: they are a mass of pins in the back. Or the models are “creatively” posed so you don’t see the flaws or weirdness in the garment.

    Of course now, for magazine photos, they probably just photoshop ’em.
