Every day after school, ten year-old Dora helps her father in the shop. As she works, she dreams of being a designer herself and dressing the mannequins in her own creations. One late afternoon after the shop has closed and while her father is working at his desk, Dora begins dressing up the mannequins. She uses remnants of bright cloth, ribbons and buttons that she finds lying around the shop floor, adding a bright scarf here and a sequin covered hat there. When her father suddenly decides theyve stayed long enough, Dora is forced to leave her gaily dressed mannequins in the window, with very unexpected results.
