Check out this awesome photo essay by David Friedman! He tells about it best: I shot these photos at a denim factory in Kentucky that specializes in distressing high-end jeans for a few top designers. I used to scoff at paying a premium for jeans that come with holes in them already. Then I saw just how much work goes into distressing jeans, and I realized that these people are artists. You can’t just have any loose threads, you have to have the right loose threads. They can’t just be faded. They have to be the right color. A lot of work goes into making these jeans look just right.
I put my favorite shots below – click here to see the whole essay on David’s blog!

Aren’t these so adorable!? I wish I had them sitting all around my apartment. Emily Sutton makes them, and she adds so many wonderful little details! You can see them all right here.

glorious eggs

Franc Grom uses a little tiny electric drill to put literally thousands of holes in real egg shells. Fragile and amazing – he generally puts between 2,500 and 3,500 holes in each egg!

migration mural


Migration / Part 01 / London / By Hellovon from Hellovon on Vimeo.
This video will show you the installation of a mural at the Truman Brewery in London called Migration. The incredible bird illustrations were done by London-based artist Hellovon. This month, the idea will “migrate” to a second exhibition space, the side of the Epeis Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Makes me want to fly…

Last night I attended the opening for the collaborative art project of Carrie and Doub!
Carrie happens to be our Assistant Art Director, and Doub, our Art Director, Assistant Design Director, and also my sister! :)
Together they created a gigantic eagle sculpture, made mostly of wood, cardboard, paper-mache. It is incredible!

The eagle will be on display here at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in building 543 for the next six weeks, and I encourage you to come check it out and write your thoughts on the wall beside it!
As you might imagine, it takes a lot of work to get a bird this big suspended in the air! Below is a little video clip showing the work behind getting the bird made, moved, and hung from the ceiling! Underneath that, more pictures!

After the eagle was finally lifted up where it needed to be, they were so glad they thought they’d give him a little kiss! :)

A little “thank you” from the artists, written on the wall!

If you are in the area at all over the next six weeks, come on down to the Philadelphia Navy Yard (at the south end of Broad Street) and check out this eagle! It’s so incredible!

Thanks Pruitt for posting the pictures and the posting. I was waiting to see the pictures. The show is amazing. Good job to Doub and Carrie and all the "helpers"!!

Our latest employee profile features one of our favorite models, Jenny! Frequently Jenny is seen gracing the pages of our catalogs, as well as modeling many, many items on our website! She is a total delight, and so charming! Below, find Jenny’s video interview, complete with a quick introduction by Lindsay, one of our photographers, who tells us why she loves working with Jenny!

Vanessa -Jul 27, 2008, 11:19PM
Jenny is my favorite Free People model, I think her look is so natural and beautiful, definitely fitting for the company. She brings such a grace and elegance to the photos. I am so inspired by the fp catalogs that I actually attempted to sort of re-create my own version as a college project last year (the URL posted). I would love to create another one and learned a lot from the creation of the first 'mock magazine.' I love the Free People company and dream of one day working behind the scenes! :)

The picture above is one of Adrianne Lee’s awesome fashion illustrations! She posted it on Free People’s Facebook profile a while ago, and from there we found her website, NinkyBink Boutique! On her website we found a ton of other cool fashion illustrations, as well as some really cute clothes she has designed! One thing lead to another and we asked Adrianne if she would be willing to do a guest post here on our Free People blog – and she was! So today it is my delight to bring you Adrianne’s awesome post, where she teaches us how to easily make a really cute corset tank! (With a lot of her great illustrations too!) Enjoy!

In less than two hours from now, you can have in your possession a corset worthy of envy from Marie Antoinette herself! This corset will defy the idea that corsets are uncomfortable (it’s made of a t-shirt!), it will be adorned with exquisitely quirky pieces of flare, and it will be made by the finest couturier, you! Don’t have a sewing machine? A needle and thread will be fine! I assure you, even if you have never sewn before, this project will be something you can handle with success!
Furthermore, this project was intentionally created to work as a coordinate with your Free People wardrobe! While it’s hot out you might pair it with a skirt and some fun leg wear and as it gets colder layer it with sweaters, jackets, and other tops! I drew a picture to give you a few ideas but I am sure you can come up with more.

This tutorial video will walk you through the steps! Good luck!

Here’s a little scrapbook to go along with the project!

I love this! I can’t wait to make my very own corset tank! Maybe tomorrow… on a relaxing Sunday? Thank you so much to Adrianne Lee! What an awesome craft project!
Also, if you find yourself wanting a corset tank very badly but not wanting to do the work, you can find other gorgeous tanks at Adrianne’s Etsy Shop!

Now, I don’t want to overload you with videos today, but this one is so cute and funny I couldn’t resist…
This video was taken during our shoot for the July catalog in France. Our catalog shooting team and models are getting ready for a long day! It was a very cold morning, and everyone was feeling kind of groggy. When they got to the first place they were going to be shooting, they blasted the car radio and started to dance and get pumped up! Enjoy!
