As a fashion stylist I was always looking for unique pieces for my-self and clients, something special that always got a comment when worn. I often found that back in the day when Urban Outfitters (then, not yet available in the UK), had just opened in the US, they had a great selection of vintage and customised jackets, skirts and shirts, perfect for my thirst for something special. Even to this day, especially when traveling, i’m looking for that hero piece to complement my wardrobe. So when I came across Free People, It reminded me so much of those early Urban Outfitter days, I need to know more about the company….

In 1970 Dick Hayne opened a store in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and called it Free People. The store grew from one to two, the name was changed from Free People to Urban Outfitters. During 2001,they realized that it was really Free People that invoked some favorite images, those of femininity, courage, and spirit. It was time to get back to their roots. Today, Free People have many boutiques spread across the US, nine in New York alone!
