Here’s a gift from our graphic designers! Free People Valentine’s wallpaper. Download it for you background on our flickr group. Be sure to set up an account and join our group so you can easily see when we post new downloads…
Our graphic designers have put together some wallpapers you can download for your desktop. This is the first one, vintage papers, and I’ll post a new one about every other week. They will all be saved in a flickr group so you can access older ones as well. (right now there is just this one)

Today the Free People design team received the sales samples for the end of summer and fall. This is the first time the designers see their creations as they will look when you see them at the store. This is after a long process of hand made samples, drawings, fittings and revisions. Still ahead there will be meetings with even more revisions and changes to get down to the most amazing pieces for the final line. Hope you like them just as much as our designers do when they hit the stores!
The new Free People store in NYC opens tomorrow! 79 5th Ave, right near Anthropologie (it’s right next to Coach on the opposite corner). More photos and info coming soon!
We got some comments asking for more details of our giant crochet tree display. Here you go! This is the prototype tree our display team made in their workspace at the home office.
The visual team crochetters worked from the top down, starting with a styrofoam ball, crochetting around it and then down, connecting to big rings as we went. Then we crochetted garland to drape on the tree, and crochetted around little styrofoam balls to be “ornaments.” Then we had to chop the rings in quarters, folded the tree up, and sent it to india to be reproduced. As you can see from the pictures of the final one in the stores, they’re all a little different. But it looks great and is a wonderful handmade treasure.
Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of the Free People blog!!! Happy Birthday to us! Thank you all so much for reading, commenting and sharing. I’m so excited for another year and all the improvements we plan to make for our Free People community. Thank you all for being a part of it.
Our stylists put together some pretty involved outfits on our website. We kept getting questions like “what are those shoes the model is wearing?” or “I can’t find those earrings…” Read More
On Monday, we opened our newest store and the first store ever on the west coast! Visit us in Del Amo! The store design is completely new. Our designers planned this store to reflect the California aesthetic and lifestyle, making the space more airy and “modern”. Even the store front is a new design. Read More
