august poetry

hayley was blue.
blue hat, blue coat, and big bouncy blue curls.
jane, she was violet.
violet hair, violet velvet maxi coat, and violet eyelashes.
betty was yellow.
yellow trench, yellow sunglasses, and yellow canary
feathers in her yellow hair.
the decade that swung.
never knowin what was to come.
i felt alive in these frocks.
all dolled up for a swingin’ party.
walkin down london streets
platform shoes
twiggy legs
skippin to the beats.
mini skirts, mini cars
big life and bright stars.
young, fancy, free
my heart belonged to biba,
but my love belonged to me
…written by one of our fp girls to put the trend inspiration into inspiring words…

That was good, but then again you have to be creative to be an fp girl. anyway, my heart belongs to cheer platforms.

Hi,this is Heidi from a knitting factory in China.I got to say, I love love love your girls’ craft and design.
In my hometown, people are also very good at craft, those beatufil chinese embroidery bead and hand-crochet. And, according your blog, which shows me a direction, I have some thoughts to apply the traditional craft to develop our products.
Thanks a lot, and hopefully one day have the opportunity to work with freepeople!
