Living Your Dream: Free People x FN
Free People were opening their first ever East London pop-up in the heart of Shoreditch for 10 days in June and wanted to host exceptional, empowering content. The pop-up was focused around their Endless Summer collection.
They wanted to collaborate with FN on an event to combine our communities as they love what we stand for.
We put together a panel discussion called Living Your Dream, aimed at showing how you can turn your passions into an occupation, and take your summer idea and make it endless.
Bianca's latest project, Karma Burger, a vegan burger restaurant, combines her love of comfort food with the fight against climate change.
She also works with brands she feels passionately about to help build their marketing strategies.
Megan Rose Lane
Megan is a makeup artist, entrepeneur, self-love advocate and mum-to-be.
Having experienced more than her fair share of serious mental and physical issues with her body, Megan now uses her story to build confidence in other young women - over 77K of them - through real, acne and all, images of herself and empowering videos on her Instagram.
Megan is now in the process of launching her second brand, a new skin care brand named after her soon-to-be-born daughter, Esme.
Katie is clinical psychology post-graduate who has worked in areas such as eating disorders, suicide helpline and community depression clinics. She herself has had a long battle with chronic neuropathic pain for which she was heavily medicated. Many years down the line she realised that a focus on mindfulness and movement was a more effective treatment than the cocktail of prescribed medication.
Her exploration of self healing through movement led to her qualifying as an AcroYoga teacher, she also teaches gymnastics and yoga to teenage girls - sharing her knowledge on mental health and movement as the perfect antidote to the stress of adolescence.
Tijana is a UCL history graduate, model, editor, publisher, occasional journalist and now co-founder of Female Narratives with Franziska Klein.
Having modelled for 10 year and interned, volunteered or worked at dozens of publishing companies, magazines, brands, and global sporting events she couldn’t find a job she wanted to stay in so created one that didn’t exist before: an all-female creative agency that connects talented, creative female freelancers with brands directly and tells authentic stories with bespoke teams of women.
