Post image for canada here we come!

very exciting news! we just opened a new free people in toronto’s hudson bay flagship store – the first fp in canada!

free people officially launched its 1,000 sq. ft. hardshop on the much talked about contemporary floor, which houses brands such as opening ceremony, McQ, LnA, halston heritage, tucker, catherine malandrino, vena cava and doo ri.

reflective of our creative roots, this shop is truly one-of-a-kind.  it is a beautiful blend of modern and vintage, mixing the earthiness of our teak tables and cane globe lanterns, with linear designed wood and metal racks.  our fabulous team of artists worked their magic, painting columns and back walls with gorgeous green flora and fauna, creating that special free people experience that keeps our girl coming back for more!

canada is big country, so stay tuned for more exciting free people launches where hockey may be golden, but sparkles and crochet will always be the way to a girl’s heart.

I also saw a few fp items in the Bay on Rideau st in Ottawa. Would love to see some more.

There is the FP line on St.Catherine's street at The Bay in Downtown Montreal since over a year ago, which nobody seems to talk about for some reason, even though Montreal is one of the world's most fashionable cities! I now live in SW Missouri, where there is no FP stores (or even Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie stores) so I really appreciate visiting The Bay when I fly home :)

Fp One

Post image for Fp One

Here’s a bit of insight into one of our Exclusive Brands!!!

Fp One is a very inspiring ‘Gem’ within the Free People community. I chatted with the brains behind the Fp One brand on the phone the other day, about how this label came about and couldn’t help but be slightly overwhelmed by her tales and experiences.

The designer for Fp One has lived in India for 20 years. Whilst visiting, she became intrigued and inspired by how these beautiful Indian workers, worked so effectively from their homes using traditional hand crafted techniques. She found herself joining these workers and getting involved in the process alongside them “ It was very hands on, and became very effective with the design process” She helped them make traditional techniques modern, to create items that now contribute to Free people’s top sellers!

The design details used on the Fp One garments are ideas that came from the design elements in the Free People stores like the Hangers, Curtains, Cushion covers and the mannequins. The designer for Fp One would play around with found fabrics that were easy and accessible to obtain, to create one-of-a kind fashion pieces with amazing character to them. You’ll find that most of the Fp One items are never the same as another in its style group.

Click here to view Crinkled Skirt

With the crinkle items that are doing well for us at the moment a technique is used that has been inhabited by the Indian workers for over 100 years, it’s a traditional technique made effective.

When the Fp One designer finds fabrics that are great she likes to push them to the best of their ability. Say for instance the Muslin Voile fabric that is used for the shopper bag in stores – it is also used for the ‘ends in sequins dress’ and the ‘petticoat dress’ featured on the front cover of the March Catalog – yep the same fabric can you believe it.

The Fp one items have a huge exclusivity appeal about them, just like vintage items do. I love how crafted each one is, the raw-ness of them and the delicate nature they have.

They are precious in more ways than one!

I,too find most of your clothing a bit steep for my budget RIGHT now but will continue to go to your page to look @ all the luciousness you have to offer.FP has the lovliest clothing and all is to my taste...
Ashley -Mar 05, 2011, 12:56PM
I'm in love with free people. The clothes are beautiful, especially the vintage items. Everything is amazingly creative and I can't stop going through the site and looking at all the beautiful clothing. It's inspiring. I just wish the clothing was cheaper. My budget doesn't even let me touch the stuff on sale. I come from a middle-class family and am still waiting to get my own job, as I'm a teenager. I think you would be very much influential if you created a line for the more common range of prices. I think you guys could do it and revolutionize fashion. Just an idea(;

romper room

Post image for romper room

i really love rompers right now. i definitely want to get a couple and will probably live in them all summer! i was thinking about these special pieces and wondering about when they first came to be… thought i’d share the little history with you.

rompers first became popular in the 1950s as beach/lounge wear! as the trend caught on, designers dressed them up a little so they could also be worn in more formal occasions too.
now, they’re everything from cute, casual, dressy, beachy, and everything in between.

they’re just a great look – and another reason i cannot wait for spring :)

check out our rompers here.

Lea -Mar 05, 2010, 2:29PM
I so agree, rompers are adorable and can't wait to wear them. Thanks for lovely history review! :)

i cant wait for spring and you can't go wrong with rompers

Tori -Mar 04, 2010, 2:43PM

Post image for fun with copying

we just got a new copy machine at the home office, and we had training today to learn how to use it – and one of our fp girls snapped these cute photos!

this is the instructor, alberto, who was very nice and very into copiers!

looks like some people enjoyed the training, and some were a little tired… it must have been pretty early in the morning ;)

legal moneylender -Jul 28, 2014, 10:28PM
You'll also see builders being pickier on construction and home improvement loans. The lender will assume that any undocumented large deposit is from an ineligible source, and can deny your loan because of it. If you can have the contract ratified and notarized by an attorney or lawyer or any legal firm this will make the agreement watertight.
