Post image for rest in peace.

My heart sank this morning when i logged on to The Guardian to check on the local news back home in England.
Alexander McQueen had Passed away, I couldn’t help but grieve.

He has been a maverick to the English Fashion Scene and an Iconic one at that. With a label such as “The Bad Boy” which came from his invention of the ‘Bumster’ in the 90′s. This Designer was out there to make a statement and that he managed to do every season.

Everyone warmed to him and his cheeky, daring attitude to Fashion.

I admired him for years and he was often an Inspiration to me when i was studying Fashion/Textile Design.

His Spring/Summer 2010 collection blew me away- It was Fashion/Art at its best!

I will miss you Mr McQueen!!!

this is so sad and such a loss to the fashion world, how sad to think he was in such a dark place, they say that being a genius is hard though (mentally - the expextations, downfalls etc) and i guess this and strugling with the loss of his mum only a week ago was too much. RIP mcqueen.

i am deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented designer. He lived just a few blocks from me. My thoughts are with his family at this time. Long live McQueen!XX

Post image for a day in the life

we thought it would be fun to give you a little glimpse into the world of some of our fp girls, so to start out, we followed one of our designers for a week! we watched as she designed a garment from start to finish, had some of her designs tested out on a fit model and presented concepts and finished items to our design team. i can’t show you too much yet, but here’s a preview of what you’ll see in the video (coming soon)! stay tuned!

Post image for february catalog drops tomorrow!

the theme for the catalog is “raw,” heavily inspired by nature – flowers, feathers, shells and raw materials, as well as lace, crochet and fringe.  the above beach shots were very inspirational, as well as the photographer dan martensen’s past shoots at the bonnaroo festival and with fashion muse erin wasson.

i think the end result is lovely!

Post image for an artist we love…

kris chau is one of our fp girls, and she’s also a really talented artist.  she has a show opening tonight at topstitch boutique in philly (54 n. 3rd) called “puppy face” featuring some of her new works, so i thought i’d ask her a few questions!

where do you draw inspiration for your work?
i draw inspiration from the girls around me, lyrics from hilarious songs, my dog, flowers i see, and artists i admire.

who are some of the artists you admire?
yuko shimizu, zeloot, genevieve castree, tim gough, rob sato, ako castuera.

what is your favorite thing to draw?
well ladies of course. ladies, ruffles, shoes, and puppies.

with a full time job here at fp, when do you find time for your artwork?
sigh, that is a question i get quite a bit and i ask myself the same thing. i give up a lot of social things and maybe grooming to do both. my life at free people gives me many opportunities that i will forever be grateful for, and due to my lack of free time making art has become incredibly important to me. it becomes something very serious in a way, i now create things that i do not compromise, i’ve taken a less illustrative and more arty route these days. my position at free people is also creative, so creatively i feel like every week i run a marathon and i am constantly trying to balance it all.

do you listen to music while you draw? what do you listen to?
i listen to a lot of podcasts (thank you fresh air and ira glass i will send you more money) as well as booty shakin jams to keep my spirits up.

what are some of your other hobbies?
gardening and playing with my sweet sweet puppy.

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?
my sweet tim, my sweet puppy, and a lifetime supply of cucumber soda.

if you’re in philly stop by topstitch boutique tonight between 6 and 10pm!  a bunch of us fp girls will be there :)

also check out more of chau’s amazing work on her website!

heather rae -Feb 12, 2010, 12:21AM
Kris Chau! I have an art crush on you that spans the states! You are literally the best.
kathryn -Feb 05, 2010, 1:31PM
i'm excited to see her amazing art first hand tonight! :)

An Item Of LOVE

Post image for An Item Of LOVE

I’m head over heels in LOVE with the Lucky Charm Romper. Cleverly enough it can become two outfits for the price of one!

Wear it under denim shorts to reveal a cute peek-a-boo of ditsy print or just on its own- I’ll be wearing mine with barely there blank tights, seductively loose slouchy socks and ankle boots, with a big chunky cardigan, until the sun starts to give warmth.

Oh and keep your eyes open for the piece in the up and coming Feb Catalog- It’s candy to the eyes!

I love seeing shots of you guys working in the office! It gives me so much more appreciation for the creative processes that go into all the gorgeous clothes and accessories! Plus, I love seeing everyone's unique sense of style - it gives me ideas for my own wardrobe. Thank you for all the great work and for this fantastic blog!!

Post image for ‘fp me’ part two!

when we saw how amazing your “fp me” photos were that you posted on facebook, we knew that we had to do something special with them. we are so inspired by seeing how real girls wear free people clothing and love seeing your individual styles. so we are doing it again – this time with a new twist! we will choose some photos to be featured on freepeople.com!

to be considered, please submit photos of yourself showing how you style fp pieces. upload them to the fan page wall on our facebook page between now and 2/12 and label them “fp me”! photos chosen will be featured on freepeople.com later this month.

* also, please note – if you already posted pics for the last fp me, you will be considered for fp me part two, so no need to resubmit them.

can’t wait to see all your photos!

fp julia -Feb 08, 2010, 2:52PM
hi elizabeth! can you go back and label it as "fp me?" or just put "fp me" in the comment section? we are only going to use photos with that label, just to be safe so we don't end up using someone's photo who didn't want to :)
Elizabeth -Feb 05, 2010, 7:11PM
What if we uploaded a picture but didn't include "FP me" in the fb post? is it still okay? :( Thanks!
