Our project with Armani Exchange started with a request for something that didn’t exist and resulted in something that couldn’t be seen.

The idea was to have a mannequin form that “disappeared” beneath the clothes, but to still retain a shape that would display the clothing fit. These were not clear acrylic sheets, cut and curved into what would essentially be a clear clothes hanger. This was a feat of research and development – chemically engineering a clear polyurethane in partnership with our materials supplier. Our clear mannequins were an industry first, establishing a long and successful partnership between Fusion Specialties and A|X.
