The creation of a window mannequins starts in the creative area where, following research and analyses of the international fashion scene, sketches and material and color combinations are developed, as would be the case for the creation of a new exclusive clothing collection.
The sculpture division then forms the prototype out of plasticine, developing its movements and positions with the use of 3D scanners and digital processing.
Scans are downloaded on numerically-controlled milling machines, which create aluminum prints that include extruded plastic and give life to different parts of window mannequin.
Eight automatic polishing tables refine the product, which is then transferred to the dedicated line for painting and then for personalization in the hair and make-up area. The cycle concludes with the product testing and packaging in a box.
The scrap plastic material, still of a high quality, is recovered and then inserted into the production process. With the basic cycle complete, La Rosa’s fashion display mannequins is withdrawn from and then reinserted into production.
The electricity used at La Rosa is produced by the company’s own photovoltaic park, which produces 1.5million Kilowatts per year.
La Rosa has an approach that is completely devoted to environmental sustainability. 2 tons of plastic are needed in order to produce 200 display mannequins.
Around half of all materials used by La Rosa are recycled, saving 700 kilograms of petroleum and avoiding the transmission of 2 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. Polystyrene, the primary material used for producing fashion window mannequins at La Rosa, is a completely recycled and recyclable plastic, normally used in the food packaging industry for film or bowls. It is non-toxic, resistant, anti-shock and incredibly durable.
