Tawny is a designer mannequin. Her physical dimensions are the perfect size for them to drape, tuck and pin fabrics onto.

Most days are spent inside a workroom with the designer and one or two assistants. Usually the creative process begins by taping a corner of a large piece of silk or tulle to her shoulder as a starting point. As they circle around her adding a straight pin here or there to add some form to the creation she absorbs every piece of the process through to the final detail completing the design.

There is no other business she would rather be a part of. She is fascinated every day with the creativity that surrounds her.

For this Bergdorf Goodman window display she is modeling a dress that was designed on her from scratch. The chapeau was the final touch.
