Post image for castles made of sand…

about a three hour drive through the desert to the west of marrakech will bring you to the seaside town of essaouira in morocco.  from the pictures you can feel the laid back vibe of a quaint fishing town, but essaouira also has an artistic culture that is very much alive- its medina houses several arts and crafts businesses, the beach is an ideal location for kite and windsurfing, and for the past 12 years the town has hosted the gnaoua festival of world music.  often referred to as the “moroccan woodstock,” the festival lasts four days and attracts close to a half million spectators.  one of the city’s most famous landmarks is the castle made of sand- said to be the inspiration for the jimi hendrix song, although he hadn’t yet visited essaouira when he wrote it. several images from our april catalog were shot in essaouira, and in looking through these photos i can certainly see why our team was drawn there.

Post image for shooting the morocco catalog

the morocco catalog was shot by photographer dan martensen – he also shot our february catalog – we love him. the team also worked with morocco-based producer fred fantun, who has worked on numerous fashion editorials, and his familiarity with the area saved our team on multiple occasions. one obstacle? the lack of cars- our team had to use three carts to carry all of their shooting equipment, but luckily their porter was awesome and had a huge smile on his face the entire time as he helped them maneuver the narrow streets and alleyways.   our team shot the catalog in several locations, including marrakech, essaouira, the house where they stayed and on the balcony of the villa maroc hotel. they did an amazing job and found some truly beautiful locations for this shoot…next time bring me along, please!?!

see more behind the scenes pics below!

we’re  crazy about denim at the home office! all of these photos were taken yesterday :)

hi hayley and jenn! it actually is the same material as the ends in sequins dress- she works closely with the designer who made the dress so she was lucky enough to score some scraps of fabric!! and the jeans are current elliot, "the skinny" style!
Jenn -Apr 18, 2010, 9:00PM
Who makes the jeans the girl is wearing in the last picture? I need to have them!

Post image for It’s all about the Body Con

We are obsessed here @ home office with the body con,and also a little obbsessed with Alexa Chung. I’ve got all excited about styling tips for this very versatile little number.

I’m the type of girl who doesn’t like the look too ‘Ginger’ (Fp’s term for the Sexy girl) So I play down any item I have that might scream Wowzer! With quirky accessories and layering.

Rock Vintage T’s, playful jewelry and messy / dreaded hair are details that will tag along with my body con. However if I had a body like our models below… Sure I’d Rock out in one all day everyday!

The items above are:1. French Terry Dress 2.Scandalous Lace Tunic 3.East Meets West Tunic

Post image for where to stay in marrakech

when our team went to morocco to shoot the april catalog their first stop was marrakech.  they stayed in a gorgeous spot just outside the city, where small streets and alleyways recede into a vast grove of palm trees.  the sounds of the city are a distant memory as you enter a peaceful oasis where oranges grow on trees and roses climb the walls towards your balcony window.  the hotel is called les deux tours and these pictures taken by our producer speak for themselves…

Post image for who’s that girl…

this is heidi – an adorable customer who came into our bucktown, chicago store already wearing our lightshow babydoll tank and raving about how much she LOVES free people! our fp girls got to know her while she had fun modeling some outfits for them…

where are you from?
toronto

what is it that draws you to free people?
i love the attention to detail!

what’s your favorite free people item in your closet?
i’m buying it right now! these jeans are amazing!

in case you’re wondering, heidi walked out with the FP destroyed skinny jeans she’s wearing in the photo. the other items she’s modeling with the jeans are the rib & lace tank in citron over the pucker up corset cami with the pacific coast jacket, and on the right she’s wearing the floral tiered halter dress. she looks great!
