yesterday at the home office we had a visit from isby lubin, a very talented young lady who is designing her own line of tshirts, called LoLA, and she’s only in her sophomore year of high school!

all of isby’s shirts are handmade – she draws the designs, burns them into screens, dyes her own plain white shirts, mixes her own custom inks and prints the shirts herself.   t love the print with the little family and dog!  she says that this first collection was inspired by her family, specifically her brothers and how they helped her and are still helping her become the person she is today.

Crazed about denim

Post image for Crazed about denim

 

It’s all folked up in my mind!

 My obsession for denim has increased to a maximum high, I’m lov’in everything from cute cut offs, straight legged ripped jeans and waistcoats. I have in mind ‘Penny Lane’ with an ‘I’m with the band’ attitude!

 The WE THE FREE Genetic patched flare and the distressed KELLY flare by Genetic are a perfect attribute to this mindset I have right now.

All I need for completion is a cute band and a 1070’s VW camper and I’m done!

Amen sister! I love looking at these posts because of that mindset.

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.
sam -Feb 11, 2010, 9:25PM
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! :)
