Rootstein Mannequins held a party for both New York's uber cool fashionistas and Rootstein's own most-fab-of-the-fab mannequins. The party was in honor of the unveiling of the Agyness Deyn Mannequin. Agyness Deyn is the recently-relocated-to-New-York English model who has rocked the runway for the past few seasons. With her classily beautiful face and perfectly proportioned body topped by her signature shock of short blonde hair, Deyn is the face of the early 21st century.

Kevin Arpino, the artistic director of Rootstein, had dressed and staged his mannequins for the night’s festivities. Staged in tableaus and lit with theatrical lights, these live-sized dolls: played with light swords; were encased in glass cages; and interacted with each other in staged scenes. And like extras on a glorious set, the partygoers flitted between the mist-filled tableaus, adding their own brand of fabulousity to the art of the magician, Kevin Aprino.
