the free people blog…

We here at free people are a curious bunch. We share an interest in exploring all aspects of the artistic culture that surrounds us and in the people that create it. This blog is about sharing those discoveries and maybe even inspiring you to do some discovering of your own.

Comments

  1. I’m so happy Free People has a blog now! I’ve been wearing the brand since 1994.
    This might be a silly question to ask, but how can one become a Free People model?

  2. Hi Sarah! We go to the pros for our models, booking them through agencies in NY mostly. Thanks so much for commenting!

  3. The blogs so far have been really interesting, and they nicely add to the idea of what Free People is all about. Good job so far!

  4. Wow. Really. Love the DIY-ness and cool chick factor feel of the blog. Adore the behind-the-scenes as well. This is just my speed….

  5. Hey! I loooove free people and am obsessed with my new wool jacket (the officer)- it’s stuplendous (did I just make that word up?), I wear it everyday! I also just wanted to say hello, and introduce you to my indie design blog, Modish, only because I think you might dig it. So, hello! And, http://www.modish.typepad.com Keep up the good blogging action, and I’ll keep up the plentiful purchasing =)

  6. I was just wondering how you are affiliated with Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters? Are the designs teams the same? Or are you owned by the same company? The catalogue addresses are the same. But all three stores have their own look.I like the blog idea and the links.Great idea.

  7. Hi Suzi. All three brands are under Urban Outfitters Inc. We are owned by the same company but operate separately in terms of design. Each company has it’s own designers, display team, merchandisers, etc that work within the aesthetic of that particular brand. Hope I answered your question. Thanks for reading!

  8. wonderful blog for wonderful things and lifestyle! i’d love to place a link to it on my blog – would you mind? thought i’d ask beforehand. good luck with all things. nina

  9. Hey, I just wanted to let you know I used an image and linked back to it. I hope this is okay!
    If not, just shoot me an email and I’ll change it as soon as I can.
    Thanks for the inspiration and incredible blog!

  10. Love Free People! I wore one of your dresses to the launch party for our book, BarCode: Your Personal Pocket Decoder to the Modern Dating Scene. You can see pics at barcodethebook.com. We’d also love to send you a review copy. How do we go about it?

  11. I love the links to other fashion and art sites. I spent over two hours surfing the net because of this blog. Thanks to Free People, I will be failing all my classes this semester! ;o)

  12. Hey. I just wanted to let everyone at FreePeople that i love all of your clothes and have been trying to afford your clothing! it is so lovely but at the same time so expencive. hehe. well i hope to make it to your store one day.

  13. hey i love your clothes! thats why i chose your company for my research project, im a design major and i love your look. i know you go for an artsy urban look but i was wondering how you would describe the “design philosophy”- i know its one of those annoyingly trite terms, sorry! also do you have anywhere i could find more info on how the company started out? wheres the flagsip, target customer etc, thanks so much! please excuse the needy- student behavior

  14. I love the Patched Fairisle Hoodie, but can’t seem to find it. Are there any available in XS?
    #65X0991 on page 15 in the Holiday 2006 catalog. Thanks!

  15. Love the catalog, love the clothes, but I think I like the blog the best! Great posts about the falling garden installation and the trapeze style fashion…oh, and the felt cake and the background info on the catalog design! I added a link on my blog. Thanks!

  16. heyyy i basically am obsessed with freepeople to the point where im mad fun of my love for this company hahaha its basically my entire wardrobe! but i was just wondering if its possible to get any of the fabrics that you have on displays in your store cause im redoing my room and your store in roosevelt field mall has inspired me

  17. hey, i am dying to have a vintage prom dress which is relatively inexpensive (under $400). but i can’t even find many vintage dresses that fit the “prom” criteria, aka long and a spring color. freepeople blog and its readers seem very plugged in to the vintage scene, so i was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere i could find such a dress? thankyou!!

  18. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this store!! If you were the only clothing store in the world…I wouldn’t care. I wish you had a store in Maryland…..Hint Hint!!!
    Keep up the good work!

  19. Free People…is my absolute favorite brand.
    I have many questions about where to buy Free People furniture and other things I see on this site! That world map…my God!!! I NEED THAT! Please tell me how to go about getting this beautiful stuff!
    Always,
    Tracey

  20. Hey,
    PLEASE come out to New Mexico with a store – there is SUCH A NEED for you here!!!!!!
    come…come…come…..

  21. i love free people…i think it’s great that free people has a blog. love free people clothing so much…would love to have a store open in nashville tn. check out birdie butter @ myspace.com/birdiebutter or…………………birdiebutters.blogspot.com

  22. first time to come here…
    I am also attracted by freepeople ‘s culture after working in some related job with FP now.

  23. I wish you had a store in Florida. Love the website, clothing, furniture, everything. Kickin in the extreme! This is so me and I wish there were stores like this when I was growing up. I was totally into the vintage scene and looking unique. I got laughed at a lot but older people loved my style. I’ve turned my hobbie into a business these days and it is sites like yours that keep me motivated to continue to grow and fulfill my fantasies. You guys are right on the mony and your site just screams Panache!

  24. Can you post a listing of the music you play in your stores. I was in it today I have this song stuck in my head and NEED to know who is it by.
    thanks

  25. Do you have a post anywhere that talks about your company…I mean who started it, how it got started…etc…was is started by an individual designer and then picked up by a larger corporation for mass marketing???

  26. hey people
    i just wanted to say that i LOVE free people!
    i am not rich and not independent yet (im 12, okay?!)
    but i LOVE free people and since my school is annoyingly abercrombie-and-juicy (that’s ALL they wear!!!) i love free people since it makes me feel original.
    so i only have 3 things from free people so far, and 2 were purchased at a cool secondhand store (Plato’s Closet-www.platoscloset.com-check it out!)
    1. cherry country kitchen headband (purchased at king of prussia mall, PA)
    2. a brown, green and pink patterned skirt with a beaded waistband (purchased at plato’s closet)
    3. linen-washed white pants (purchased at plato’s closet)
    once again, I LOVE FREE PEOPLE!
    hehe. sorry.
    if you have a crafts or original clothes/etsy or whatever website, email me at bdwaybound@aim.com and i’d love to check it out! thanks!
    kendall + free people = love

  27. I am a big fan of the free people line, and also of the hairstyles, with the cool braids, they are so unique. I would love to hear about the stylist or other info.

  28. PLEASE come out to Poland (Krakow ) with a store – would be a great place for you here!!!!!! I can help…. I love your clothing it’s inspiring, beautiful and everybody ask me about it!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have chance to get it once in while when I’m in USA xoxo Magda K.

  29. How come you guys don’t make a plus size line? You would do so well. Many of my bustier friends love the clothes that our skinny friends wear and I am personally sick of making clothes myself. Plus I don’t have the talent to make anything moare than a skirt or something really simple…

  30. I was just looking at your new job posting because I am dying to get a job at FreePeople.. and I saw that there are a lot of new jobs located in Concordville, PA which is a good location for me. But it is for Terrain. Is this a new store that is part of the FreePeople brand? Could you please just let me know about Terrain? Thanks so much!

  31. Hi! i just wanted to say that i loveee free people and all of the art that goes into it. FreePeople is what inspired me to start making my own clothes and i keep lots of journals now like a photojournalists and i was surprised to see that you guys also like dan eldon! i wanted to know if you have a design team or artists that helps you with all of your art ideas? and i also wanted to know if you have internships?

  32. I absolutely love your blog!! I take fashion design, so it provides so much inspiration- in my style. Free People cothing prices however are exorbitant for garments that are not very well made, are made at low prices oversees, and are made out of cheap fabrics (synthetic sweaters do not keep you warm; wool (the real thing, does). Free People’s mood is sort of hippie-ish, free, and connotes the feeling of independence. All of which I associate with American made products. Show some patriotism and help your own economy. and by the way, I love your decor.

  33. i bought a free people jacket in new york at bloomingdales they dont send to uk can you suggest how i can get one in cream

  34. I’m with MJ — why don’t you have sizes over 12? Are you afraid of women who are shaped like women? Or isn’t our money good enough for you?

  35. I love the beautiful, unique, and artsy style of Free People, and I always recieve compliments when I wear this brands outfits. I think the price tag is a small price to pay for the confidence and beauty I feel that comes with these clothes.
    This blog lets me keep in touch with the Free People lifestyle I wish and love to be a part of.
    xoxo

  36. Who created this beautiful design “Caravan of Curiosities”? I am talking most of pictures. Colors are just beautiful!!! Looks like color pencil were used, but can you get all this done by hand? or this is all done by computer now? So, imaginative. I am so grad that you did not use things like “Beach, seagle, sea shell etc.” I love it!!!

  37. hey freepeople i love your blog and your clothing!!! all of your clothing is so incredible, i started shopping for your stuff about a year ago and now practically my whole wardrobe is freepeople, anthropologie and urban outfitters…i am in love with the prints and colors, and your blog is a lot of fun to look through, keep doing what your doing!

  38. We need designers for the Eco Exchange Fashion Show at GreenFest Philly
    Sunday, September 7th 2008, 1PM
    Eco-Fashion hits South Street with style and sustainability. We need designers using organic, alternative (hemp/bamboo/etc.) and reused/vintage materials. The festival draws 20,000 people and you’ll have the opportunity to showcase designs and promo on and off the runway.
    Please contact liza ASAP at liza@goodlifeevents.org to participate or check out http://www.greenfestphilly.org/fashion.php for details (throw out the submission guidelines – we want you!)

  39. I love everything about Free People. Enter to the blog and see so many cute things, really make me happy. I’m going to sound very tacky, but the blog makes me realize that humans can do SO many beatiful things… we have potencial. Maybe I’m just hormonal at the moment, but I can feel the good side of mankind at the blog.
    hehehe.
    Well, I don’t speak english, so if the comment is weird… I tried my best! I will study more english.

  40. I absolutely love this site. My friend and I actually started a project on our own before we even found this called Project Once Upon A Time where we reinvent beloved fairy tale characters through fashion and photography. So far we’ve only done Beauty and the Beast.

  41. I would love to be listed as a favorite on your blog roll – please check out my blog and if you like – love to be listed. Love your blog – visit often. – Julie

  42. Hi Julie. Thanks for sharing your blog! I like it very much!
    The only blogs on our “favorite” list are those that we have featured on the FP blog, but I’ll keep checking yours and maybe post something soon:)

  43. Fp;
    Thank you for coming to Downtown Seattle, This friday will be fabulous, I can’t WAIT!! xo – Val

  44. Hi. I was wondering if you could tell me the lipgloss brand and color that the model is wearing on the website. She is modeling the “Dazzled Paris Headband” in the color cherry. Thanks so much.

  45. Free People! You are amazing. I am like others, my friends actually posted their craig’s list add for roommies describing me as the “Free People Love child” My friends always ask, “Is that Free people?” anyway you get the point- I love love love you store. The only thing is. I follow the whole eco-fabulous, earth friendly, free people-free thinking, style…which means….I care about where my clothes come from and how they were made. Please…where can I find info on this? I really really really wish you guys would make a only made in the USA line or an organic line! Think of the positive impact this would have!!
    Love

  46. Hi!
    I`ve made you a christmas card inspired by Free People, may I send it to you ?If so which email adress should I use?
    I am a norvegian Illustrator, I love your clothes and I wish I was able to buy your clothes here in Norway:)
    Love, Vibeke

  47. i really love the holiday make-up video!
    is there any chance you could list what was used? it would really help a lot.
    thanks :)

  48. You should have the comments go from most recent to oldest. They start with stuff people typed in back in 2006. Makes your blog appear to be old and stale — but then, maybe it is. These retailer blogs are so bogus.

  49. Hola !!
    Deseo felicitarlos por este maravilloso blog, de verdad que es inspirador. Durante el dia si estoy cansada y llena de trabajo me conecto un momento y solo entrar y ver tantas cosas curiosas que ustedes publican dia a dia y realmente me da alegria.
    Un fuerte abrazo y besos
    PD: no vivo en USA, pero cuando viajo compro sus productos.
    Hi!
    I wish to congratulate them for this wonderful blog, which is really inspiring. During the day if I’m tired and I work full time and only one log in and see so many strange things that you publish every day and really gives me joy.
    A big hug and kisses
    PS: I do not live in USA, but when I travel I buy their products.

  50. love your idea ,i’m a student of china. i have some idea about the Sponge adhesive tape,waiting for your hallo…

  51. I adore the Free People vibe. I have always purchased Free People outfits from boutiques or their catalog because there was never a store in my town. A few days ago, I went into a Free People store for the very first time…loved everything about it from the hanging lanterns to the patched sari curtains. I wrote a letter to FP customer service to find out where I could find their pretty dressing room mirrors (carved wood with birds at the top) , but they weren’t able to give me much information. Please tell me that my search is over. I would love to have such a mirror in my home.

  52. bring a free people to springfield il. we’re the capitol! :) love your clothesbring a free people to springfield il. we’re the capitol! :) love your clothes<3

  53. Hey!
    I love the blog!!
    I’m utterly obseSSED with free people and i wish my WHOLE closet was free people! I sometimes fool around with shirts and skirts that i make and ive always looked for fabric to use that is somewhat like free people fabric, i was just wondering where you guys find this fabric, same with anthropologie, does anthropologie sell it?? also does free people make their fabric? Just curious, also, a few years ago there was a contest where you can join and there is a chance to win a 1,000 $ or so giftcard to free people, are you going to do that again, please?? ha ha
    thanks for your time
    -Kristina

  60. Hi Free People! While listening to my ipod the other day a Bob Dylan song came on. It’s one of my favorites and I think it describes the Free People Girl beautifuly! Here are the lyrics.
    She Belongs To Me. By Bob Dylan
    She’s got everything she needs
    She’s an artist, she don’t look back
    She’s got everything she needs
    She’s an artist, she don’t look back
    She can take the dark out of nighttime
    And paint the daytime black.
    You will start out standing
    Proud to steal her anything she sees
    You will start out standing
    Proud to steal her anything she sees
    But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole
    Down upon your knees.
    She never stumbles
    She’s got no place to fall
    She never stumbles
    She’s got no place to fall
    She’s nobody’s child
    The Law can’t touch her at all.
    She wears an Egyptian ring
    That sparkles before she speaks
    She wears an Egyptian ring
    That sparkles before she speaks
    She’s a hypnotist collector
    You are a walking antique.
    Bow down to her on Sunday
    Salute her when her birthday comes
    Bow down to her on Sunday
    Salute her when her birthday comes
    For Halloween buy her a trumpet
    And for Christmas, give it a drum.

  61.

  63. I love your cloths! Will you be making plus sizes? You really should. Us gals would love to look trendy too! Seems like everything in larger sizes is so old or cheap looking …

  64. heeey, around this time last year free people had this adorable shirt that i wanted to get so bad but when i went to buy it everybody was sold it. i forget the exact name of it but it was orange, i think navy blue, and white and it was a tanktop with three buttons on the top. it also came in light pink, grey, and white too. it is almost striped. if anybody knows what shirt im talking about let me kno haha. is there anywhere i could get this shirt or find it because ive wanted it forever. and by the way loveeeee free peopleee <3

  65. been reading your blog for several days. really love what you posted. by the way i will be conducting a research about this area. do you know any other good websites or forums that I can get more info? thanks a ton.

  66. i’m not a model & have never been one but i would really love to model for free people. i know you only accept people from agencies but where could i get started? what agency would you recommend to start out from? i have the ‘free people’ style and would love to do this so please let me know

  67. I would just like to add yet another comment to ask for a plus size line. Many of your free flowey styles would look great on plus size women. There is a good market for plus size clothing and very limited options. Please consider making at least some of your styles in an expanded size range. Thanks :)

  68. What company makes the furniture behind the cash registers at the Free People stores?
    I love the furniture as much as the clothes!

  69. From short term loans that are borrowed until the next paycheck to ones that
    have more extended terms of repayment, payday loan agencies
    provide fast service and give traditional lenders a run for their money.

    Fast payday loans thus provide a great respite in this
    situation by giving you loan in a very short time.

    For instance, laws and regulations concerning payday
    loan with Singapore alter from a legislation in which governs managing dollars lending options in America.
