Hall of Fame

A Rootstein mannequin starts life as a sculpture based on a chosen model; it’s always about choosing people who epitomise the time. Countless models have stood before Rootstein’s sculptors for hours and days. Body sizes and shapes fluctuating with the fashion trends, from the popular Twiggy, Sandie Shaw, Joanna Lumley, Janet Suzman, Joan Collins, Lord Patrick Lichfield, Jeremy Brett, Pat Cleveland to more contemporary fashion figures such as Erin O’Connor, Dianne Brill, Yasmin Le Bon, Susanne Bartsch, Ute Lemper, Karen Mulder and Jodie Kidd. The result is a figure which expresses the mood of fashion embodied in the qualities and concept for which the model has been selected.
