FREECITY is a Los Angeles–based brand founded by Nina Garduno over a decade ago. A former buyer for Ron Herman, Garduno has created a line of casual clothing that is locally handmade with couture craftsmanship. Born and raised in Laurel Canyon, her designs are
soulful yet playful.
For WEAR LACMA Garduno created T-shirts, sweatshirts, and a puffer jacket in FREECITY’s signature style inspired by a painting in LACMA’s collection by Philippe de Champaigne of St. Augustine holding a flaming heart.
