"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." Today Free People is know throughout the world for having a uniquely handcrafted appeal that perfectly blends street chic, femininity, and the creative spirit. The line designs for "a 26-year-old girl, smart, creative, confident, and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to it's limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between. Who loves Donovan as much as she loves the Dears, and can't resist petting any dog that passes her by on the street." - FreePeople.com
