For centuries, people have used fashion to showcase their individual styles and personalities.

If you want to update your wardrobe, here is more information about the store’s recently launched line and what inspired its innovative ensembles.
what is mannequin concepts?
A Texas native, Mannequin Concepts’ CEO, Evan Lyons, grew up far from the nightlife scene of the 1970s-era New York but drew inspiration from the famed Studio 54 for his fashion line. Watching films from the period, including The Wiz and Uptown Saturday Night, also inspired his women’s and men’s fashion pieces, which include crushed velvet, high-waisted denim, polished brass button embellishments, and black medallion dress made with four-ply silk. Iconic designers Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Alexander McQueen are also his creative inspirations.
about the creator
Even though Evan is self-taught, having honed his craft working for famed fashion houses and as a freelance stylist, fashion runs in his family. His mother was a mannequin model before he was born, and her ‘70s headshot serves as the logo for Mannequin Concepts. Silhouettes of the logo are featured on the medallions that adorn the plunging necklines of their stylish unisex hoodies. The collection also includes T-shirts, jumpsuits, denim shorts, bags, and additional accessories, many of which are ungendered.
