Shops that sell mannequins and body forms

Professional mannequins of excellent quality are now being sold at Crystal House in Al Hanna Centre (Satwa) on the ground floor.

Fantastic quality for a great price, right here in Dubai.

Other designers in Dubai are already using them, and I will be making a batch order for my client this week.

You can walk right in and purchase on the spot, or if they don’t have what you want, you may make a custom order.

Body forms, leg forms, detachable arms, cage, metal rollers and body forms too :)

Happy body form shopping!
