Les mannequins aussi vivent leurs vies ! Le photographe Oded Balilty s’est intéressé à la vie cachée des mannequins destinés à habiller nos boutiques de Prêt à Porter dans sa série Life of Mannequins.

Et tous les mannequins ne servent pas aux mêmes desseins. Certains auront la chance de finir apprêtés comme des stars de cinéma sur les grandes avenues de New-York. D’autres, moins vernis, occuperont les entrées d’une friperie de Camden Market à Londres.

Après des années et des années de service auprès de leurs propriétaires, ils finissent tous à la casse. Tous nos amis standardisés doivent tristement s’effacer devant la génération suivante, tout juste assemblée dans les usines.

Venez découvrir la vie cachée des mannequins en plastique !

THIS IS ONE OF A SERIES OF 15 PHOTOS BY ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOGRAPHER ODED BALILTY--Mannequins wait to be painted at the Goldsmith factory in New York Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007. As Fashion Week gets underway in New York, rail thin models will still be on the runways, but when garments reach the stores, many of them will be displayed on mannequins that more realistically reflect the human form - and the shapes of customers shopping for clothes. Goldsmith also has a line of full-figured mannequins.(AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
