The Christmas tree dress mannequin has been appearing in window displays over the last the few years but this year the trend seems to have reached a real peak with the festive mannequin popping up everywhere. Done well these styled trees can really add to a display and make a refreshing change from just putting up a Christmas tree in the window. Like most trends we have yet to see if it will start to disappear next winter or if it will it become a mainstay in lots of festive displays. Other creative takes on the Christmas tree have started to appear on our high streets with a focus on handmade trees, mannequins dressed in outfits of crackers and kooky trees inspired by different themes. As creativity is always at its full force in charity shops, I’m sure we will see some innovative re-interpretations of the Christmas Tree appearing next year.
These are some of the visually strongest Christmas tree mannequin dress displays.
