"LA SIGNORA" my Dress Form

I call her "La Signora". She has been my best studio mate since 1973! Actually it's a clone of myself! At the first year of Art and Design school, we all had to create our own dress form, assisted by student colleges.The problem was to find a stand for the form. After 2 years I could not believe my luck! On a Flea Market I found the PERFECT stand, handmade, and very special, as it has a kind of "skeletal" for inside support.
I'm sure the most of my ex-companions don't even know where "she/he" is, but my "Signora" has followed me all these years, and helped me with hundreds of projects! 
Now she lives in Rome!
