American Apparel has many-an-eyebrow raised at their newest display mannequins. Right in the front window of their New York store, stand 3 seemingly normal mannequins - female, loosely tied-back hair, glasses - wearing sheer lingerie. Nothing so shocking about that, I'm sure you're thinking.

According to various online newspapers and websites, District Visual Manager Dee Myles says that it is "important to have instances spark up curiosity and conversation about what we deem beautiful and sexy." And the American Apparel New York window display is set to send tongues a-wagging with that very taboo topic of conversation.
Looking at their website, they have kept to their "theme" of letting their models go au naturale (though very much more manicured); and their stand of no photoshopping also seems to be true:

Drop me a comment with your opinions on the matter, and maybe why you think that way? Or even just a comment on what you think of the display, regardless of your thoughts on personal maintenance! ;p
Til next time,
