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.

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

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 ;)

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.

Post image for turn your dresser into a shelf!

yes it’s another dresser idea but i wanted to share this today too because i think its such a unique, cool idea.

if you happen to have a really old beat up dresser that you don’t use, take out the drawers and paint them a a bright color, line them with some cool wallpaper and turn it into a sweet-looking shelf!

i  think this would look awesome if you used some old vintage wallpaper like these…

wallpaper

so what do you guys think, would you try one of these ideas on your dresser?

Stacy -Mar 05, 2010, 4:56PM
I once did something similar with old drawers that were being discarded from my apartment building-- from a kitchen that was being re-done. I really like the idea of lining the drawers for some extra color. One could also try wrapping paper or contact paper, available in lots of patterns in hardware stores (designed for lining shelves and drawers)-- or even scented drawer liner paper, which is often available very cheaply at places like T.J. Maxx. :)
lisa -Mar 05, 2010, 10:57AM
I saw something really similar in the ReadyMade book. That magazine is a must have for the creative mind.

this is such an amazing idea – i saw it on design*sponge a while ago and i’ve always thought about doing it, except i don’t have a dresser like that :)  the flowers remind me so much of our one of a kind vintage flower necklace!

img_0178

for their tutorial, they used some vintage brooches found on ebay, removed the backs and glued screws on.  check out the full tutorial here!

such a great way to give your dresser a little free people touch :)

Luana -Mar 03, 2010, 12:52PM
Awesome! I love that they are all mismatching it gives such a cozy home feeling. Another DIY idea with knobs, my mom purchased a broken knob from Anthropologie and is making it into a ring.

We are featured as one of the best places to work, Which is pretty exciting!!!

I got shown this book today “I Wish I Worked There!” It’s a very cool book by Kursty Groves co founder of Headspace and www.spacehopper.com and Will Knight the founder of Brew, a London and New York based creative collective.

The book reveals some of the world’s most inspiring workplaces and we are in there!

Here’s an excerpt

“An environment that appeals to their imagination and encourages them to explore…

“The Philosophy has fuelled a multitude of creative solutions and whimsical additions to the working environment over and above the restoration and preservation of the buildings themselves. An acid bath is transformed into a fern garden, former wood columns become grand staircases, and an abandoned decompression chamber has a new life as a sculptural piece between buildings”

 

This book is great – Google’s and Innocent work space looks pretty fun too, but i think we give them a run for their money!

Nikki -Mar 02, 2010, 8:46PM
Very cool. I will have to check out the book.Peace.
Amanda -Mar 02, 2010, 7:41PM
@Erin: So did i, I'd love to be an intern, or work at one of the stores.. I haven't heard anything either. Free people is the most amazing place, and there stores... don't even get me started. If I could use one word to describe fp, it would be inspirational. -Amanda
