We had a fun visitor in the office last week – our creative director and art director met Ronen Verbit in New York and loved him so much they brought him down to our home office for a day! If you aren’t familiar with Ronen you should check out his videos – they are so clever and unique. Here’s one that we got a kick out of!

Free People King of Prussia is dreaming of Fall!  Whether it is curling up in cozy oversized sweater while sipping cider, or strolling through the park in a sweeping pair of extreme vintage flares while leaves fall at your feet, we are so excited for the start of the season! To celebrate, this weekend we are giving away a hand-made dreamcatcher with a purchase of $300 or more, to help make all your dreams come true!

P.S. DIY Dreamcatchers.

Post image for Happy Labor Day

Even though summer isn’t technically over yet, Labor Day always seems to mark the end of it. I get terribly sad this time of year…summer is my favorite, and I never want it to end. I’m holding onto our endless summer concept and trying not to let it go just yet.

This dog cracks me up! She belongs to our creative design assistant and she is probably the tiniest dog I’ve ever seen – pictures really don’t do it justice. She’s a cutie and she loves to breakdance! Check it out :)

Ilse -Sep 12, 2011, 12:05PM
She's lovely! I'm only wondering, doesn't she get dizzy? :P

Post image for A Free People Rendezvous in Chicago!

Did you know that Chicago was recently rated one of the best cities to be a single lady? That got us thinking… what will our most devoted single (and coupled for that matter) ladies wear on their dates?

To celebrate our newest Free People store opening in Chicago, we decided to bring out our Art Director/Lead Stylist who is responsible for so many of the amazing Free People looks – and she will style you ladies for your next date night!

We hope you’ll join us, share some snacks provided by Southport Grocery & Cafe, and celebrate our new store opening!

The event will take place Tuesday, September 6th 6-9PM

at our new Chicago store, 3447 N Southport Ave, Chicago IL

Doors officially open on September 7th, so you will also get a first peek at the newest collection and have the chance to shop early!

And, please feel free to bring a guest, just let us know if you can attend and how many will be with you :) You can RSVP on our Facebook event page.

Looking forward to meeting all of you!
