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!?!
we love being used as inspiration and hope to encourage it … photographer javiera estrada used free people clothing to style part of a look book for a jewelry designer! thanks so much javiera, we’re very flattered and your photos are beautiful! check out a couple more of her photos below that we love and think exude free people spirit…
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…

the girls who work in our virginia stores sent me the following writeup on an event taking place in their area that they love – the national cherry blossom festival!
on march 27th, people began to flock to the DC metropolitan area to witness a breathtaking event – the flowering of the cherry blossoms along the tidal basin! in 1912, japan gave the cherry blossom trees to the citizens of the united states a gift of friendship. the cherry blossom festival is held every year – this year from march 27th until april 11th, and is located just 5 minutes from our free people store in clarendon, va, and 20 minutes from our tyson’s corner, va location. throughout the two-week festival, customers who visit the stores are inspired by the cherry blossoms, which symbolize the fresh, bright renewal that spring delivers. the free people girl loves venturing into DC to enjoy the colorful blossoms blooming in her path and to fulfill her love of nature.
