Love Elsa’s look in this shot: fp one sequin short, back to cali tunic, tangier maxi poncho, headpiece and lots of layered necklaces. Burning Man, anyone?!?

Catalog Behind the Scenes: Morocco in the 1970s

There’s something surreal about these behind the scenes photos from our holiday catalog shoot in Morocco.  The lighting, the colors, the vast open landscape, it almost seems like a different planet… where our team became desert warriors on a mission to shoot a beautiful catalog.

Oh what I would give to spend this weekend dancing down cobblestone streets in the moonlight,  spinning on carousels and hanging out in dimly lit Parisian cafes…

Paris in the 1920s: Behind the Scenes

Paris was the perfect setting to capture the fashion of the 1920s for our Through the Decades holiday catalog.  The grayish light and romantic architecture created a dreamy backdrop to the 1920s styling worn by Elsa Hosk and sisters Zuzanna and Julia Bijoch.

Here’s a peek behind the scenes thanks to Thomas Northcut!

September Catalog: Behind the Scenes with the Dogs!

As you may have seen by now, we had a very special cameo by one of our beloved home office pups in the September catalog – Toby! I caught up with Toby the other day to ask him about his experience shooting his first Free People catalog :)

Were you nervous about being a part of our September catalog shoot? I was a little nervous, but once we started shooting, I relaxed.

What did you do to prepare for the shoot? Well, I’m a natural so I didn’t do much. I had a bath and made sure my paws were extra clean.

What did you think of Bambi, the model you posed with? She was great! I think we complimented each other well. At first, she was a bit scared of me, but after she realized I was a gentle giant, she had fun.

What was your favorite part of the shoot? Being showered with cookies and attention from all the ladies :)

Do you get stopped on the street now that you’re a famous catalog model? Not so much…

Will you be doing any more modeling in the future? I hope to. I am available :)

Do you have a favorite item from the September catalog? I love the Americana Sweater Jumper.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall? Boots and the cooler weather!

Toby wasn’t the only pup on set at the September shoot! He had a bud to hang out with – Ace!

Ace lives on the farm in New Tripoli where our catalog was shot. He lost his leg when he was hit by a car but he is doing just fine now! He had a blast during the shoot and LOVED all the attention from the ladies :) He is one happy dog!
