In my last post when I said that 'It's party time', I really did mean it, folks! An Indian Summer brings to you a superb giveaway from the iconic fashion brand - Free People! Read on to know more about the giveaway, and also get a glimpse into Free People's deep India connection!
Free People is one of the immensely successful brands owned by Urbn Inc., who also own the fabulous Anthropologie and the hip Urban Outfitters. Free People designs clothes and accessories for the women who enjoy a modern bohemian style and revel in the nomadic spirit.
I have always been drawn towards Free People because of their eclectic designs and also the very visible connect with India. In 2010, they launched the speciality line known as FP One, designed by a three member team of designers, completely in love with India! All FP One clothes are made in India and are made to blend traditional old world aesthetics with modern fashion and design.
Merrie, the lead designer and the brains behind this line, has always been infatuated with India, it's colors, the fabrics and the skill of the craftsmen. She spends six months each year in India, developing new body styles and techniques, prints and embroidery. The FP One line beautifully uses age old textile craft methods in contemporary silhouettes and styles.
Also proudly proclaiming Free People's love and connect with India is it's store at Rockefeller Center in New York. The fitting rooms are decorated with rangoli, brass urlis filled with flowers, kilim ottomans and yards and yards of lovely textiles from India, transforming the simple act of trying on a dress into a magical experience!
