Who Owns/Founded Free People? What is the Brand’s History?
The Free People brand was started all the way back in the 1970s. At this time, a young man named Dick Hayne had just opened a small store in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He named the store Free People and the small brand began accumulating a small following. The brand grew in popularity thanks to many young people seeing the brand’s clothing as a way to express their own personal freedom.
Once the store got popular enough for Dick to open a new one, he renamed the brand to Urban Outfitters. After some time, Dick’s wife Meg began tending to the Urban Outfitter’s private division label. During this time the brand began selling products that were exclusive to the Urban Outfitters brand to massive success. This success led Dick to create a wholesale line. This wholesale line was also extremely successful, so much so that Dick made the decision to separate it from the main business brand. This wholesale line had a few names over the years including, Bulldog, Ecote, Cooperative, and Anthropologie. It wouldn’t be until 1984 that the name would be changed to Free People, breathing new life into the original name that started it all.
After 2001 Free People would break off from its sister brand and come into its own, embodying the ideals of femininity, courage, and freedom just like its original incarnation. The revived brand resonated with women around the world, especially women in their twenties who appreciated the brand catering to their intelligence, individuality, and creativity.
