SAN FRANCISCO - Jan. 17, 2014 - PRLog -- There she is standing in the window of your favorite department store. Chin up, vacant glance, hand on her hip. Her porcelain complexion, chilly, elegant and inviting, inviting enough that you’re enchanted to look past the price tag of that sparkling gown draped on her tiny frame, and carry it like a precious pearl to the register. The mannequin, once a French moniker for model, has since taken on a much larger connotation. A lifeless piece of plastic she is not. By today’s definition she’s the modern gatekeeper to our glamorous desires, she’s the woman (or man) we want to be. No one understands this better than the artisans at “ABC Mannequins”, one of the retail industries leading mannequin manufacturers, holding the coveted prestige of a Made in Italy product, featured at retailers and events from Milan to Manhattan, Manhattan to Moscow and soon San Francisco too.

Thanks to “Alu”,  ABC’s exclusive North American distributor, ABC’s sensuous “Ophelia” mannequin will be gracing the showroom of Alu Mind’s, 'ROAD' Retail Design Show and you’re invited.

Conceived over the course of 5 years, ROAD – Retail Design Show is Abramo Manfrotto’s exploration into how retail has evolved. Manfrotto, CEO of ALU noticed a peculiar thing. Quality decisions that top retail industry executives were charged to make regarding retail design were being hindered. Their companies were suffering due to the lack of the proper components not being readily available in the right place at the right time, in the right atmosphere. The potential of these talented visionaries were delayed.

Over the course of two weeks, ROAD will feature an array of workshops, speeches, demonstrations, and networking opportunities for all invited partners and guests. The synesthesia that will bring together the premier influencers of retail and design. Learn more:
