We know that, at a basic level, models are essentially moving mannequins, but this Gobhi Theivendran shoot takes this mannequin theme to the extreme. His model rocks robotic poses throughout the photo set, and even her eyes seem empty and desolate.

We've seen a number of photo shoots that take models and turn them into dolls, robots or mannequins. Check out some of my favorites below.

Implications - Through referencing the comparison between models and mannequins, this fashion spread makes itself far more relatable to the average consumer. Products with the ability to incorporate common ideas within popular culture can help ensure their products appeal to a much larger target demographic.
