The Scoop at Free People

Rarely do we get to feast our hungry eyes on limited edition anything before it hits, but here is a delicious sneak peek behind the scenes at Free People.

Free People - Once - limited edition dresses from FreePeople on Vimeo.

It's so cool to get to hear what the designer had in mind when she carefully crafted her dream dress. My personal fave is the ballet inspired dress - those tiny bells and ruffled skirt are just begging me to hit the dance floor! The perfect pick for holiday parties.

Even more interesting is how Free People is delving into coordinates (the second dress shown can be worn together or separately - the corset would be smashing with a bomber jacket and bright-ass lipstick, the skirt layered to the teeth with tall riding boots), which is hilariously reminiscent of my grade three teacher but obviously much....MUCH, cooler :)

Being a junk-store junkie and history nerd, I can't help but agree with Highsnobette in that I'd love to hear more about the origins of their textiles and patterns... Maybe next time we'll get a tutorial on the where's and how's of sourcing those beautiful fabrics.
