Our latest employee profile features one of our favorite models, Jenny! Frequently Jenny is seen gracing the pages of our catalogs, as well as modeling many, many items on our website! She is a total delight, and so charming! Below, find Jenny’s video interview, complete with a quick introduction by Lindsay, one of our photographers, who tells us why she loves working with Jenny!

Jenny is my favorite Free People model, I think her look is so natural and beautiful, definitely fitting for the company. She brings such a grace and elegance to the photos. I am so inspired by the fp catalogs that I actually attempted to sort of re-create my own version as a college project last year (the URL posted). I would love to create another one and learned a lot from the creation of the first 'mock magazine.' I love the Free People company and dream of one day working behind the scenes! :)

Hey Free People girls!
Show us your style! How do you wear your Free People? Head to toe? Flashes of flair?
We noticed that people would often upload pictures of themselves wearing
their Free People to our Facebook account, and we loved it! That got us thinking… and curious to see more!
Send us your pictures of you and your friends in your Free People
clothing, and we’ll put them all on our Flickr account!
Email your name, age, and current town with your pictures to
blog.freepeople@gmail.com, and we will upload them!
If you can, tell us which FP items you are wearing too!
Eventually, we’ll pick out some of our favorite styles and feature them on
the blog!
To get started, we put up a few pictures of our own employees rocking their
Free People here at the home office! You can check out our Flickr folder for
this event here!

Check out one of our newer items, the Lacey Bandeau Cami!
This cami, aside from featuring a lacey bodice, has an awesome acid washed bottom!

We asked our Assistant Design Director, Doub, to tell us a bit about acid washing! Here’s what she had to tell us: “We love acid wash! As we all know, acid wash was a big deal on jeans and heavy metal tees in the 80′s. Those of us who actually did experience this time period maybe either don’t remember it or would rather not admit to owning something acid washed! Haha! We love to bring this 80′s acid wash back but on something unexpected like a sweet cami. Often if there is anything too sweet or too pretty we like to acid wash it, to bring it down a notch and roughen it up around the edges. It also makes our thermals and lightweight jerseys so so soft and antique-looking.”

We also tracked down the designer responsible for this cute cami, Dana! She tells us: “The acid wash is done as a spray over the finished garment, to get a variety of results on the different fabrics and trims. We love the acid wash! We like using it because it adds a rougher boy edge to the more girly feminine styles, and also because it adds a lot to the fabric and the overall look of the style. We’ll be using it again in upcoming seasons, on different kinds of fabric to get different effects!”

We adore this technique, and this cami! Keep an eye out for more acid wash styles coming this fall!

The picture above is one of Adrianne Lee’s awesome fashion illustrations! She posted it on Free People’s Facebook profile a while ago, and from there we found her website, NinkyBink Boutique! On her website we found a ton of other cool fashion illustrations, as well as some really cute clothes she has designed! One thing lead to another and we asked Adrianne if she would be willing to do a guest post here on our Free People blog – and she was! So today it is my delight to bring you Adrianne’s awesome post, where she teaches us how to easily make a really cute corset tank! (With a lot of her great illustrations too!) Enjoy!

In less than two hours from now, you can have in your possession a corset worthy of envy from Marie Antoinette herself! This corset will defy the idea that corsets are uncomfortable (it’s made of a t-shirt!), it will be adorned with exquisitely quirky pieces of flare, and it will be made by the finest couturier, you! Don’t have a sewing machine? A needle and thread will be fine! I assure you, even if you have never sewn before, this project will be something you can handle with success!
Furthermore, this project was intentionally created to work as a coordinate with your Free People wardrobe! While it’s hot out you might pair it with a skirt and some fun leg wear and as it gets colder layer it with sweaters, jackets, and other tops! I drew a picture to give you a few ideas but I am sure you can come up with more.

This tutorial video will walk you through the steps! Good luck!

Here’s a little scrapbook to go along with the project!

I love this! I can’t wait to make my very own corset tank! Maybe tomorrow… on a relaxing Sunday? Thank you so much to Adrianne Lee! What an awesome craft project!
Also, if you find yourself wanting a corset tank very badly but not wanting to do the work, you can find other gorgeous tanks at Adrianne’s Etsy Shop!

Hey Carolanne! Some designs weren't uploaded to Flickr because we received them in a file format that Flickr doesn't accept. However, if you send your last name to blog.freepeople@gmail.com, (so I can find your entry) I can have a look at it and try to tinker with the file type, if you would like.
Carolanne -Aug 14, 2008, 12:52AM
I was just wondering why my design wasnt uploaded onto the fliker thing?

Now, I don’t want to overload you with videos today, but this one is so cute and funny I couldn’t resist…
This video was taken during our shoot for the July catalog in France. Our catalog shooting team and models are getting ready for a long day! It was a very cold morning, and everyone was feeling kind of groggy. When they got to the first place they were going to be shooting, they blasted the car radio and started to dance and get pumped up! Enjoy!

Check out these adorable Sheer Dip Dye Tanks! They are SO SOFT! Gabrielle, the designer mostly responsible for their creation, had this to tell us about them:
“To make these tops we used transparent jersey, a special fabric that we developed just for We the Free. It’s a burnout poly-cotton blend that has a super soft hand feel. To get the print and color, we used a dip dye technique, and used discharge printing for the designs. The printed designs were inspired by organic prints, as well as text. One of the tanks has a text based print that we found in the lining of a vintage Russian military jacket. We think it was the soldier’s name and ID number.”

“We love the different tie dye techniques that we used! It’s an easy basic tank with an amazing fit; fitted on the top with a more easy fit in the body. You can layer it or just wear on its own.”
Thanks Gabrielle! We love these tanks too!

I got one of those tanktops from the Spring season and they are SO comfy. I wore it under one of your dresses to my graduation.

Agnes!

Meet Agnes! She is the dog of one of our stylists, Lauren, and she has the pleasure of coming to work almost every day!
Name: Agnes
Nicknames: Wagnes, Waggles, Waggers, Angus, Aggy
Breed: Your guess is as good as mine!
Likes: Everyone in the whole world (not the best watch dog), being dragged on her back down the halls in our building, and skateboards.
Dislikes: Not much aside from being ignored.
Favorite friends: Her two boyfriends: Charlie (the golden retriever puppy from Urban) and Porter (the pointer puppy from Free People), Indy, Brownie, Pilgrim, Mackenzie, Lizzy, Pruitt, Erin and Elsa
How did you meet? My boyfriend and I were at the gym one night, and the SPCA was having an adoption event in the lobby. Agnes and another puppy were chasing each other around (they were both twelve weeks old) and we decided to adopt her. The following evening, we drove to the SPCA to pick her up, we didn’t even have a leash! When we brought her back to our apt, she ran in circles for about 2 hours, it was amazing.
Anything else you want to share? If you are thinking about getting a dog…adopt one! There are so many wonderful puppies who need homes.

These cool scenes are from Terrain’s first store! Terrain is a sister brand of Free People, as they are both affiliated with Urban Outfitters Inc.
Terrain features a lot of the things a garden nursery would feature, like an array of plants, flowers and trees, and landscaping services. It also has some stunning and eclectic furniture and decorations for the home. Besides all that you can find some really incredible skincare products and even books at Terrain!
The store is located in Glen Mills, PA, a town outside of Philadelphia. This weekend they are having a fun container gardening event, on Saturday at 10am and again at 2pm! Check them out if you are in the area!
