Post image for a fairytale wedding

these wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous…the beautiful bride, who works in our new york showroom, was kind enough to share them for the blog.  the wedding took place at the hotel dupont in wilmington, delaware, and the outdoor portraits below were taken at the nearby gibraltar gardens.  looks like the epitome of a fairytale wedding to me…that dress is incredible!

**those of you wondering who designed the dress…monique lhuillier!

erickson beamon

Post image for erickson beamon

erickson beamon jewelry is founded and designed by karen erickson, eric erickson and vicki beamon. as the story is told, their jewelry business was born out of necessity. while working with a designer for their premiere apparel runway show they found no one would lend them jewelry to accessorize with, so they strung crystals and beads on suede and launched their first jewelry line. immediately the jewelry took off and was noticed for its fashion forward, edgy quality. their trademark are handcrafted beaded necklaces, which are meticulously assembled by hand using tiny crystals and semi-precious stones. the unique, handmade yet fashionable quality of the pieces has drawn the attention of some of the most well-known designers in the fashion world, who have had erickson beamon design custom pieces for their shows. they have one retail store located in london that is described as “a place where people can have their fantasy come to life in jewels.”
we are thrilled to have their designs here at free people! view our full selection of erickson beamon here.

recycled scarves

our direct operations coordinator makes these amazing one-of-a-kind scarves out of loops of recycled fabric that she gets from old clothing. i love the color combinations that she comes up with! i also love that the scarves can be worn in a couple of different ways, as seen in the photos below. these would be such a cool handmade gift for friends and family as winter approaches!

bora bora

Post image for bora bora

as part of our online holiday boutique we are featuring eight amazing jewelry artists who we love here at free people, and i thought you might like to know their stories. we’ll start with bora…

we have worked with bora for years, and we love his unique jewelry and his ability to think outside of the box. born in turkey, bora’s immersion in mediterranean culture is one of the many things that inspires the jewelry he makes today. his dream was to be a musician, but his creativity and imagination led him towards jewelry design. with the help of his engineering background, he is able to carefully craft designs with close attention to detail and dimensions. his favorite material to “play” with is copper because he appreciates the historic quality of the metal. the best thing about his pieces is that they’re an abstract and interesting addition to any look.
check out our selection of jewelery by bora here.

finding a great vintage item (especially t-shirts for me) is like stumbling upon your own personal treasure. it’s unique and personal and immediately special.
these photographs were brought in by our marketing manager, who recently discovered them at her grandmother’s house. she’s trying to come up with a cool way to display them at home…they’re of her grandparents in their younger years, and not only are they awesome because they’re vintage, but they’re simply great photos too. check ‘em out… as you can see the sizes are different than your typical 3×5 or 5×7. if you have any great ideas, i’m sure she’d love suggestions :)

These are so cool, I love vintage!!!!!

good morning and happy friday…
take a look at this cute behind the scenes video from our november 2009 gift catalog shoot. this shoot and catalog are extra special because they feature our customers as our models! the girls in the catalog are from our open model casting that was held over the summer.

the song in the video is “hobo girl” by the fruit bats…if you haven’t heard their latest album the ruminant band you should check it out…just sayin.

Allison -May 06, 2013, 3:53PM
Hey! I was actually one of the girls in the catalog, and I was really bummed when I went on your YouTube to show a friend the video and it wasn't there. Any chance you'd be able to post it back up? Or even e-mail it to me? I like to reminisce from time to time :) Thank you!
ronnie -Nov 13, 2009, 10:45PM
THANK YOU for introducing us to such an awesome band (and Winston)!
