I was so excited filling this out that I realized after I submitted it that I was not prompted to upload any examples of my photo-editing! Did I miss something or is that separate? Thanks! :)

is there any talk about opening up a Free People in Calgary, Alberta, Canada? I just moved here from Arizona, right after the Free People store opened at the Scottsdale Fashion Square.. I am super bummed I never got to shop there! I love free people. It inspires me as a designer, and a photographer. I am planning to decorate my new room inspired by free people!

Post image for Abbey Lee again in Free People

I’m sorry for the constant update lately on Abbey Lee wearing Free People but I cant help but gloat.

How often to you get a profound Fashion model wearing a brand non stop at the worlds biggest fashion event ‘Fashion week’?!

Here she’s a eclectic beauty, mixing our leaves of memory skirt with a jersey top and velvet jacket… kinda like the one that’s coming to us for Holiday :)

hardly strictly

Post image for hardly strictly

hardly strictly bluegrass starts today in san francisco!

with one exception – radiohead’s show at outside lands (first ever nighttime show in golden gate park) – this was the most fun i had when i lived in san francisco. the festival takes place each fall in golden gate park, and consists of three days of live music – FOR FREE. those of you who haven’t been to san fran, october is probably the nicest month out there weather wise and there’s really nothing better than spending a weekend lounging on blankets in spectacular golden gate park with a bunch of friends listening to the plucking of guitar strings. this year’s lineup is sick – including t. bone burnett w/ a special appearance by karen elson, jenny and johnny, steve earle, conor oberst, joan baez, trombone shorty, umphrey’s mcgee, the felice brothers, sharon jones and the dap kings, yonder mountain string band, the avett brothers, railroad earth, elvis costello, patti smith, emmylou harris, and many more.

did i mention its FREE??? check out the website here.

I have never been until this year, and I plan to go every year now. I didn't realize how big it was and for something that's free, it's pretty spectacular. It's an overall good time with good people and good music!

Post image for our october catalog

here at free people we are so inspired by fashion bloggers – we love seeing how they express their personality and fashion sense through their blogs.  there is no denying the influence they’ve come to have in the fashion world and we love it, because they’re real girls.  so we invited three bloggers, each with their own unique look and style, and asked them to model in our catalog.  we wanted the shoot to be natural and fun, and capture them in their element.  each blogger had the freedom to style their own outfits and were photographed in the homes of three of our employees, each with their own personal photographer.

the outcome: a visual diary of three girls who love to have fun with fashion.

natalie suarez makes the world of modeling more personal by sharing her off duty style, fashion inspiration, and passion for music on her blog natalie off duty. natalie was photographed by her sister dylana suarez (of the blog nana in wonderland) at the home of our creative director in northern liberties, philadelphia.

england-based georgia larsen is the free-spirited blogger behind dora’s fur, where she shares her eclectic style, fashion inspiration and personal photos and stories. georgia was photographed by our studio photographer nathan kula, at his home in northern liberties, philadelphia.

rumi2

rumi neely has become an international sensation through her blog fashiontoast, where she showcases her impeccable style in editorial-quality photos taken by her boyfriend colin sokol. rumi was photographed by colin at the home of our senior designer in mt. airy, philadelphia.

the catalog will be available online and in the mail on october 5th.

maybekara -Oct 11, 2010, 9:46PM
actually rumi is a model thats why she started her blog.
free people fan -Oct 06, 2010, 5:40PM
No, real girls is them putting employees in the catalog. However looking at the final product they do look like models, and it did turn out nicely. I just wish I hadn't of known they were some random bloggers. I guess I should start one and maybe you will feature me one day! :)

hey! been loving the calenders, but this one feels off season to me...the colors remind me of spring, not fall! needs more coziness and darker, warmer tones and textures...

The Tallest Man on Earth is playing in Philly Oct. 2nd. You need to be there. He is the closest thing to Bob Dylan - the Bob of our generation. I promise you will fall in love with his music and everything about him. GO GO GO! You won't be sorry! :D

Post image for blogger field trip

yesterday morning jemma and i went on a little field trip in old city, philadelphia, to visit some of our favorite shops and take photos for the blog!

five

first we went to vagabond boutique and yarn shop, which is definitely one of my favorites. they carry brand names and vintage pieces as well as yarn and knitting supplies, and i love the way the interior is decorated – lots of wood and natural touches like antlers.

one

two

three

four

arts2

arts1

the other store i wanted to mention is called art in the age of mechanical production. this place is really cool – it’s a combined store and gallery space, based on the idea of offering artwork in a broader context. it is also the home of alcoholic root tea – an herbal remedy first created by native americans. during prohibition, the alcohol was removed by a philadelphia pharmacist and re-introduced as the root beer we are familiar with – until art in the age brought it back. entering the store almost feels like going back to the pre-temperance time period – it’s full of antique trinkets and artistic displays.

we also met one of the sweet employees at the store, erin, who just happened to be wearing free people!

five

one

while in the shop we both found ourselves admiring these adorable little leather books, and erin informed us that the artist who makes the books would be holding a show at the store for first friday, along with her husband. walter and margaux kent are the philly-based artists behind peg and awl and the black spot books. i definitely recommend checking out both etsy shops, their stuff is adorable! margaux makes the books out of found leather items like shoes, moccasins, wallets and sofas – some are small enough to wear on a necklace, so you always have it at your disposal if you want to write something down or draw :)

art

i definitely plan on stopping by tomorrow evening – for more info on the event, click here.

soooo nice

art in the age of mechanical production is so awesome and their "Root" is so good, and the wall paper with the letters A, T, and I are really clever. Love the clothes too
