I am really excited to announce the winner of the Free People Fashion Illustration Contest!
It was wonderful to see how talented all the Free People girls out there are, and it was hard to pick a winner because there were so many amazing illustrations!
And now without further ado, our winner, Katie Rodgers!
You can check out all the entries right here on our Flickr account- they’re awesome, have a look!
And if you didn’t win this time around, don’t lose hope! We have more events in the works. Stay tuned!
I can’t believe this is our fiftieth Thursday Poll! Wow. But here we are! Last time we looked at some of the fun colors of the Cheeky Lace Bra – the Grey came out on top, but not by much! Violet and Pimento were behind by only 20 votes!
This week I’ve been checking out our pretty sparkly headbands! I love the sequins! Have a look at them below…
First is the Sequin Halo Headband, shown here in Gold.
Don’t forget tomorrow is our open model casting in New York City! It will be taking place at our 5th Avenue store from 10am until 2pm! You don’t have to be a model, but on account of the size of our samples, it’s best if you are a US ladies size 4. If you have any questions at all, please post them as a comment here and we will be sure to answer you as quickly as possible! You can also check out the original post for more information!
Can’t wait to see you there! When: Friday July 10th 2009, 10am – 2pm
Where: Free People

Today is the USA’s Independence Day – it’s our 233rd birthday! Hooray! I hope everyone is out enjoying themselves and eating yummy food and getting ready for awesome fireworks celebrations like the ones above! I’m off to get ready and try to get my own pictures of fireworks!
Hooray! It’s time for our Thursday Poll! Last week we looked at a bunch of our summer dresses, and Pattra is going to be psyched, because Pattra’s Criss Cross Dress was the favorite by far, with 44% of the vote!
This week I’m obsessing over bright colors. I mean, I always am to some degree, but especially lately – maybe because of the upcoming colorful fireworks? At any rate, I noticed today that our Cheeky Lace Bra comes in many appealing colors, and I still haven’t decided which color is my favorite! Below are five of the colors – it actually comes in more than five, I just picked the brightest!
First check out Violet!
Next is Pimento.
Now shown below is Green. (Yes, Green. I am not sure why we called it Green, maybe the trim… He he!)
This is a cute little montage of our Visual Display team creating some signage for our stores using stencils and spray-paint! Look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor in stores soon! The cool song is called Ride an Old Paint, by Pete Seeger!
