Open Model Casting This Friday!

Are you 18 years old or older? Do you love Free People and think you have what it takes to be a model for us? We are looking for fresh new faces! Come to our open model casting! It will be taking place at our 5th Avenue store in New York, from 10am until 2pm on this Friday July 10th! You don’t have to be a model, and you need not bring any photos of yourself unless you want to. On account of the size of our samples, it’s best if you are a US ladies size 4. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
When: Friday July 10th 2009, 10am – 2pm
Where: Free People
79 5th Avenue
New York City, NY 10003

i wish the age requirement wasn’t 18


If only I were a year older!

Gilda K.

I can’t believe this, I’m in Manhattan until Thursday! Is there ANY possible way I can meet the casting team a day early? If there is no way I am willing to look into flights going out on Friday– I’m just too close to miss it! Please, please contact me if you get the chance!


Hey Gilda!
I’m afraid that our casting team will only be in New York and available to meet with people on Friday! I’m sorry! I hope everything works out anyhow!


How tall do you need to be?


Hi Dana!
I don’t think you have to be any particular height, just so long as you are a size 4 so that you could fit into the samples if necessary. Hope this helps! Good luck!

Too bad I’m not skinny enough…


Is it absolutely ridiculous to show up if you are 5’3” and a quarter?


… is this a 4 dress size, or jeans, or tops? Or all around?
(for us ladies who are a 4 dress, but have a little… more, up top)


i think you should make a FP teen, even though most of you clothes fit 13 year olds ;)
i wish i was old enough!
and a size 4. hahah


Is a size 4 100% necessary?
Would a size 2 be able to get by?
This is like the best opportunity ever and I’ll be willing to binge the rest of the week if I gotta hehe


I want to make the 3 hour trek, but at the pocket size 5’3… I don’t think i stand a chance. Uh, no pun intended. I am so, so glad that FP is doing this though!!


will there be any other cities you go to at some point….(nudge nudge) like chicago?


any chance that you’ll have a casting in California? i’m tempted to just fly out to NYC!


Hey All! We are so psyched that you all are interested in the casting! :):) We can’t wait! I would like to reiterate that there is no height requirement. And for all of you who are concerned that you are smaller than size 4, don’t worry! The main thing we are concerned with here is that our sample sizes are generally size 4, so we need you to fit in them! However if you are a size 2 or 0 or something, that should be fine! After all, you won’t be too big to fit in the samples, right? :)… Read more »


I shop at FP already and love the clothes..
But if you guys had a free people teen.
Do yall know how much money and publicity will be made.
Especially if teens could do the modeling.
I would definately be the first to sign up. :)


Oh I can’t believe I missed this event, I had just gotten back from the UK the week before and wasn’t on top of my game with checking the FP blog. I hope it worked out well and you guys decide to do it again soon!
Good Luck!


Goodness! I can’t believe I missed this! I just had gotten back from Dublin the night before and hadn’t been up to date with checkin’ the free people blog :( And look at the price I paid! Never again will I not check on a daily basis! I’ve actually been very interested (dreaming) in/of modeling for Free People for a long, long time (I’m sure I’m not alone!) Is there going to be any open castings anytime soon again? I do have an online portfolio and modeling experience :) I know this is a long shot, because you I’m sure… Read more »
