this is our biggest book to date, and there’s so much t want to tell you about it, from the photographers to the models to the locations. starting with chapter one…
“the center of attention, she glistens in the night. she is a cinderella star in a beautiful dress. She’s the special one, the one with magic all around her.”
to achieve an atmosphere of holiday magic and fantasy, our team went to northumberland england and shot part of this section at eglingham hall – a location known for being the backdrop to many of tim walker’s magical shoots.
the location was perfect to capture the essence of a girl who awakes to find herself in a fairytale, the lines between reality and dreams are blurred. she dons a beautiful dress and dances off into the night like cinderella.
the photographer for the shoot at eglingham hall was benjamin huseby, who’s dreamy photography captured the spirit of the belle of the ball beautifully, as brought to life by models julia hafstrom and jessica mau.
the third model in this section, who also graces the cover, is the lovely zippora seven. she was shot wearing some of our gorgeous holiday dresses here at the home office in philly by our photographer anthony nocella. she’s done so many great shoots, but these two photos have always been among my favorites:
i have lots of photos of eglingham hall to show you so stay tuned :) and view the entire november catalog right here!
Here at Free People, we know and love cords. It’s falls go-to fabric. This Autumn/winter we have styles to suit your “wear till they’re threadable” needs, as well as the chic tulip flare that you’ll turn to when you want to smarten up. These are the styles we’ll be wearing this autumn.”
First round modeled by one of our lovely girls working here at the home office: the flared cord which is perfect for Fall, and the shape is super sexy!
on our last day in cali we did some shopping in hollywood and stopped by the free people store at space 15 twenty. i was stoked to see the store because i’ve heard so much about space 15 twenty. it’s a cute little spot with a courtyard where they hold monthly flea markets and live music – there’s also an urban outfitters, an art gallery, and umami burger, which i didn’t try but is supposedly a must when in LA.
and i really can’t say enough how awesome the girls are who work in our stores. they are so warm and friendly and have amazing style – it was lovely meeting you ladies!
wee people is now up online! it is so exciting to be able to see the whole collection after hearing about it for so long – and the little models are really too cute for words.
here is a collection featuring the favorite items of our managing director of design and image, who was inspired to create this line by her own daughter (who just so happens to be the model pictured above and in many of the wee people shots) :)

“when i was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. when I went to school, they asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up. i wrote down ‘happy’. they told me i didn’t understand the assignment, and i told them they didn’t understand life.”
while in santa monica i of course wanted to stop by our free people store, located on main street, to say hello. the store is adorable and the girls could not have been sweeter. i wish i could visit every single fp store!
