Project info

For more than 50 years Rootstein created the world's best and most realistic display mannequins.
From a small factory is west London models like Twiggy, Joan Collins, Erin O'Connor and Agyness Deyn were immortalised in clay before being cast in fibreglass hundreds of times and shipped across the world the high end boutiques like Chanel, YSL and Dior.
These images were captured in the last 2 years before the factory closed and the land was redeveloped.
The brand has subsequently been brought by Italian manufacturer Bonaveri and will relaunch in 2020.
