Company Overview

Designer Nina Garduno explains the Free City aesthetic, “I don’t consider myself a designer. I make simple things that aren’t simply made. I make clothes that feel like something you’ve known forever. It’s all very utilitarian, but it has a certain fit. We labor over everything we do, the silk screens, the colours, the patches, the words we use, how we wash the clothes, the way everything smells.”

History

16 years ago, LA’s Nina Garduno launched the brand Free City with a simple T-Shirt that read “Free City Neighbourhood”.

The brand started after Garduno took a trip to Copenhagen and someone told her to visit the Free City. That city was actually called Christiana, which is basically a commune. Garduno said, “I realized that I have been so many places like this; groups of people living this alternative life. It’s a spirit. If I don’t want to live on the commune, how can I feel this and be this? Always. I can be Free City.”

The brand has achieved cult status fueled by years of tabloid photos showing celebs in Free City sweatpants.
