18th April, 2017: Pia - Helsinki, Finland

I have been using my K&L dress form for a couple of months now.  I am just a beginner in draping and design, and K&L has really boosted my learning!

I am very happy with my real-size Concept 97 dress form.  The opportunities of my new half-scale mannequin are yet to be explored.  So exciting!

The whole purchasing process was smooth, starting with my first contact with Helen, choosing the right models, dealing with the cross-border financial transaction, and finally ending with the awaited delivery to my door in Helsinki.  I must say it took some time - and it was definately worth it.

So now I share my sewing space with these perfectly formed creatures.  Beauty meets functionality meets creativity meets fun!

I have wanted to own a K&L dummy since using them 'way back when' when I was studying fashion design. My "Concept 97" is perfect for my Bridal Wear business, such a good body shape and the dummy is made so beautifully.  I cannot wait to start designing and using 'her' for my Wedding dresses!

Helen has been so helpful as we sent emails back and forth, so professional and all answered promptly.

Delivery was perfect and the parcel packaged so well, yes I am a very happy customer and would certainly recommend K&L most highly.

I have always been interested in purchasing my own Kennett and Lindsell dummy, as they are highly recommended by fashion industry experts, and I knew it would be a worthy investment.  

The process of ordering was very simple, and Helen gave me all the necessary information to help me select my ideal form. 

Delivery was well organised and I knew exactly the date and time it would arrive.  

I am absolutely thrilled with my new dummy! It is exactly what I was after, and the craftsmanship is outstanding.  

Thank you K and L

I was unsure which range or size of dummy to order as it was for my own use and I'm not a 'standard' size. Helen and her colleagues advised me and even spoke to the workshop who were able to do a small alteration to a dummy to make for a better fit. 

All my emails whether questions or placing the order were answered promptly, and both the half scale and the full scale dummies arrived very safely packaged within the timescale Helen had advised. 

I'm very pleased with the standard of construction of the dummies and the very personal service which I've had.

My model has just arrived and I'm over the moon !!!
It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen and the size is so accurate. Could you please thank the people who worked on this piece of art for me. It's just amazing.
And of course thank you for your wonderful customer service.

Excellent craftsmanship, I love my new K+L mannequin. I am glad I made the investment and did not settle for a cheaper brand. The service was amazing with super fast turnaround time. Order was delivered within the week. Thank you again!

I am absolutely loving my new K&L dummy with the collapsible shoulders. The quality of the workmanship is second to none. The shaping of the body is perfect and the collapsible shoulders makes it so easy to pull my bodycon dresses over the head.
I’ve been wanting to buy one ever since I graduated… that was 15 years ago. Christmas has definitely come early this year. Thank you!

We already have several dummies from K&L and we like to work on them.
But this last one was special : I was looking for a good pants dummy for men.  I found one, but not all the measurements were correct for our standard. Helen suggested to me that I could make changes, which we did.
I sent her trousers which had to fit on the dummy and also gave our sizes for men.  Step by step, she kept me updated, sent me photos of the dummy without the trousers and with the trousers. This was an excellent way to work !
I got a correct price–offer with the extra costs for the changes. They sent me the unfinished dummy- so far – so I could also try on other trousers. Then I sent it back with my comments and made marks on the dummy for a perfect fit.
I must also say, the packaging of their dummies for safe transport is also very professional.
It takes a while to make a handcrafted dummy, but I am very pleased with such an excellent result and superb communication.  I also want to thank the technicians because without their workmanship, this would not be possible.

We ordered two dummies (female/male) for our design studio.  It was a pleasure working with Helen who was there if we had any inquiries or concerns.  They arrived with great packaging and with a friendly courier who carried them all the way into the studio.  The dummies themselves are very good quality and we can’t wait to start using them!

This is just to confirm that I have received the delivery in very good order already the day before yesterday.  So, many thanks to you for your patience and great customer service.  I was quite amazed on the quality and level of the packing.  I am really happy with the product.  It is very nicely done.  So many thanks to you and the whole K&L team.
