Back in the 1970's, a young man named Dick Hayne planted a seed in the maze of streets and trees that make up West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He opened a store and called it Free People. Free People nurtured the young people who lived there and shopped there, who looked for a little of their own freedom in the clothes they wore.
Free People invokes images of femininity, courage, and spirit. Over time, Free People has shed its junior image and evolved into a more mature, contemporary brand. This led to the creation of clothing lines that cater to intelligence, creativity and individuality, while keeping with its great quality and affordability. The brand reaches out to smart, creative, confident and comfortable individuals in all aspects of being.
