An FP New Romantics Dress Goes To A Wedding

In December, my sister got married in Mayfair London at The Savile Club. I mentioned the wedding a couple of months ago here, but didn’t have many professional photographs to show. Now that the photos have come back we can re-live the day and experience it all over again. Read More

Wedding Inspiration From The Free People Family

Our assistant art director recently got married to a photographer we often work with (Thomas Northcut) and as soon as I heard about it I knew I had to ask if we could share some photos, because I knew it would be stunning.  The wedding took place in Maine, against a breathtaking backdrop of coastal scenery and amongst the couple’s closest friends and family.  I love the casual, relaxed vibe of the wedding and special details like the kid’s tent (one of the adorable printed tents we used to sell at Free People), the beer boat, colorful confetti, and a bonfire complete with s’more-making. You can tell from looking at the photos that a lot of love was in the air. Read More

Office Space: BHLDN

By now you have probably heard of our new sister, BHLDN (pronounced Beholden), a line of dresses, accessories and décor for your wedding day.  Over the summer, FP Naomi and I went over to their offices, which are located in Free People’s former home, Building 15.  We got to take a little tour of the office, check out some of the dresses and other samples, and took a bunch of photos for the blog! I have to say, I am not a wedding person – not even a dress person – but I saw a dress at BHLDN that I completely fell in love with! Their stuff is stunning, and we’re proud to have them in our family :)

Here’s a little peek, just for you, behind the scenes at BHLDN.

The gorgeous chandelier in the lobby is made of repurposed glasses! Love.

A Free People Wedding Gift: Quilted Fabric Clutches

Our operations coordinator is also getting married, and had the amazing idea to incorporate some of the beautiful quilted fabric from India that we use for lots of our store displays – by having it used to make one-of-a-kind clutches as gifts for her bridesmaids! She worked with her friend Paige, a local designer behind Christine Shirley, who uses scraps of old fabric or old vintage clothes that may never come back in style to make handbags, clutches and more.  Check out the amazing clutches she made with the quilted fabric!
