Marissa Freed, Founder of FREED, was born and raised in the industry. Her mother’s family worked in fashion while her father, Stephen Freed, was third generation of parent company Freed & Freed, founded in 1921. Fast forward to 2020 and Marissa launched the FREED collection of luxury vegan and cruelty-free outerwear.
FREED is Canadian vegan outwear for true individuals. Of all kinds. Made genderless, for every generation, and as a form of self-expression. Not to dictate style or just to be worn, but to own it and wear it your way.
“As I became a mother, I wanted to be an example. To have a positive impact on the world and show you can look put-together in under 15 minutes. Being inclusive and welcoming is part of who I am. I created FREED to express myself unedited, and inspire others to do the same. Authentically and unapologetically.” – Marissa
