Free People – Skagit Valley Tulips

Posted by on Apr 24, 2016 in Client Work | No Comments

Working with Free People over the past year for the Seattle store (as well as Austin, New Oreleans and Salt Lake) has been an absolute dream come true. Creating magic with my girl Nikki, and getting the opportunity to meet so many amazing new faces brings me the greatest joy!

For our latest adventure we headed up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Fields. We couldn’t have timed it better, as it was the week Seattle was reaching temperatures in the 70s and the tulips were at their peak bloom. (Sadly as of April 17th the fields are closed for the season, but there is plenty to explore in Skagit Valley until the tulips come back next year). It was such a beautiful day – and we were thankful for the sunshine and gorgeous flowers. Inspired by spring, the tulip and of course our favorite festival styles – bringing Nikki’s vision to life was simply a breeze!

Enjoy!

This is it. The moment, the place, when I feel the true essence of spring. This is the season for life, filled with color and light, so it is appropriate we find ourselves surrounded by the blossoms of love for as far as the eye can see. I want to bottle it up and save it, put it on a shelf for moments when the air is not as fresh and clear. For just like the blossoms of a tulip, spring is fleeting. You have to catch it while you can, breath it in before it transforms into something else. So take that deep breath and let the warmth soak into your skin and the flowers fill your dreams. Spring is finally here. – Nikki Cloud
