Thanks to the poster for blogging this. I randomly came across this while googling my name (something i do every six months or so). My show is moving up to Astoria new york through December at Himalaya Teahouse 33-17 31st Avenue Astoria, New York 718-777-7450 I'm not sure if the poster was aware...but I work a few buildings over as the women's apparel web photographer for Urban. Our dogs probably play together.

I love the Home Office shots and features on employees! Your office seems so fun! I'd love to see a spotlight on someone who works in buying/research/anything related to consumer science.... I'm considering going to graduate school for something similar and would love to learn more about what people actually do in this field!
Darya Kagan -Sep 05, 2009, 8:29PM
Oh, the home office pix are the best. It's really good to know who works at Free People!!!

moore bikes, please

from fellow fp’er whitney…she has a good eye.
“i stopped by moore college of art and design to pick up my bike from the bicycle: people + ideas in motion exhibit. there was one bike there that screamed free people; wish i would have had my camera.
(NOTE: whitney went back and grabbed some pix for us – rad)

Moore%20Bike%20Show%204.JPG
it was all done up with glitter, small figurines, flowers, etc. it definitely wasn’t for riding but it was wonderful to look at.
bicycle: people + ideas in motion celebrates philadelphia’s passion and commitment to the bicycle with exhibitions and events that explore the art and design of the bicycle—from functional object to a canvas for good causes, personal expression and civic-mindedness.”
runs through october 13…

martin’s school

some more touching stories from merrie, re: her travels in india…
“these are some pics we took last monday while visiting a school on ‘baas,’ a small village outside delhi.

the school was created 2 years ago in an area where the children have no access to a good education. its founder was the naval attache for the british high commission in india years ago, who ended up staying in india with his wife. together, they built an amazing home which they have opened as a guesthouse (bed and breakfast) for tourists.
it was fascinating to hear his stories of what he has been through with the indian government and the villagers while trying to help the children, but he perserveres, undaunted…amazing ‘chap.”
these pics are from the morning assembly they were having…all the children lined up singing songs and dancing with their music teacher (“mary had a little lamb,” etc.).
TAKILI%20BOTTOM%20%20martin%20school%20%288%29.jpg
TAKILI%20BOTTOM%20%20martin%20school%20%2810%29.jpg
when i popped my head in to take a peek, all the children stood up, unprompted by their teacher, and greeted me with “good morning madame”. very sweet.
martin offers internships to english-speaking students to expose the children to other accents, etc. when we were there, a young girl from britian was just finishing up her month spent with the children. it was very emotional for her to leave, as the children performed their songs for her farewell…”

This is fantastic! I just launched a site at the end of March called http://stylelikeu.com it features a deeper look into the thoughts and closets of inspiring people with amazing personal style. I interview people casually while videoing them in their closet with all of their tips and ideas. It has become a network of exceptional and authentic people. It is also turning out to be a platform to support whatever each person featured is doing creatively in their lives. Be sure to check out our link! x, www.stylelikeu.com
