retrospective - female bustforms

At proportion>london we are rightly proud of the company's 140-year heritage. During that time a multitude of body shapes have been developed that denote significant changes in fashion silhouettes of bygone generations.

The Retrospective Collection comprises four of these distinctive body forms, lovingly hand-made using traditional paper-mâché manufacturing techniques and upholstered in a choice of quality fabrics to give the perfect "old-new" look figure. Shown here are sumptuous silk mix velvets and over-painted calico with a distressed finish.

Accessorised with ink black stained and waxed wooden bases and necks and stove black metal, we additionally offer three of these shapes as ½ scale miniatures. A selection of retrospective shapes are also available for male forms.

Papier-mache production is an eco-friendly craft process and we are one of a handful of producers still operating production in the UK today. All these figures are skilfully handmade by our team of craftspeople, here in London.

Proportion>london supply many of the world's leading museums, including the V and A, Kensington Palace and the Royal Collection.
