Scooby Doo, where are you?

The task of photographing all the Bring & Buy auction items finally gets underway, thanks to the help of Fran at i-D and Tanya Reynolds at Proportion, who are lending us a number of amazing mannequins. Formerly the original London tailors dummy and mannequin manufacturer Stockmans, they have a showroom with archive samples dating back to 1880. Some of the antique ones are uncannily realistic, as these pretty Edwardian and Victorian ‘house of wax’ girls show. Their eyes seem to follow you around the room. Watch the studio webcams at night for any mysterious happenings, and expect this project to end with the quote “And if it hadn’t been for those pesky kids, I’d have gotten away with it!”
