Check out the flyer we designed to promote our Austin store at SXSW (or South by Southwest) music/film/interactive conference/festival.
The March catalog is here! The book was shot in India in Rajasthan Desert’s Neemrana Fort Palace. The palace is a hotel that many of the Free People designers have stayed in when traveling in India. Built since 1464 AD, Neemrana Fort Palace is among India’s oldest heritage resorts.
The two trend concepts in this collection are Peace Corp Prep and Everything but a Flower. Peace Corp Prep is a mixture of traditional preppy styling mixed with Indian prints and colors, lots of plaids mixed up with Indian florals. Everything but a Flower is print driven, inspired by all things geometric, both vintage and modern.

sfgirlbybay got a case of Gocco Mania! I’ve heard the word “gocco” but honestly didn’t really know what the printing process entailed. She posted some great pics of the process. Check out her blog for the account of her illness.
On the back of our last catalog, we challenged you to recycle the paper in a creative way.
We received the most amazing note via email. One customer took our challenge and used the pages of our catalog to create this awesome jewelry. We are so impressed and surprised at how she re-purposed the book. Great job Ashley!!! You can buy these pieces and more at Ashley’s etsy store or befriend her on myspace!
Did anyone else see that challenge on the catalog? Anybody else do something creative?? Leave your email in a comment!
Wandering through Chinatown this weekend, I was on the hunt for some craft supplies. As I made my way down Walker Street, my eye was captured by this amazing window on the second floor of an industrial building. The sign read Barometer. I rang the bell and went on up to discover the sweetest little shop full of “attic” objects and handmade jewelry. I met Miss Anna Studebaker, who curates the collection of objects. The jewelry is made by her partner, Jenna Wainwright. The shop is a bit like an attic, a bit museum, and a bit girly studio apartment. Check out their website and pay them a visit next time you’re in NYC.
“Pizza Girl is Physical Phil’s colorful and energetic girlfriend. She attends Dufresne College and works as a pizza delivery girl. Fate and a whole lot of pizza brought her and Physical Phil together.”
That’s Pizza Girl’s bio on abc.com for the drama October Road. The zap2it TV Fashion blog did a feature all about Pizza Girl’s look and how it was inspired by Free People. Check it out…
I did an entry a while back announcing our myspace page, and now it’s time to let you know about our facebook too. Will you be our friends? It’s one more way to be in-the-know of all things Free People. And maybe you want to make friends with some of our friends. Maybe someone has a cool job you want to learn more about, maybe they are an artist and you’ll love their work, maybe they have amazing taste in music and you’ll discover some new bands. Who knows…

I spotted an entry about Swedish girl Lykke Li on someone’s blog a few weeks ago, and have been seriously obsessed since. So I thought I’d share. You can’t get her record in the states (not that I know of anyway) but her myspace has a bunch of songs and you can download a version of “Tonight” from her website.
