Mitchell “Mickey” Freeman also known as Mickey Boooom, is a fashion stylist and designer, born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His instinctual creative flair has had very early beginnings and there’s no ending in sight. The juxtaposition of growing up in a rough environment, coupled with his attention commanding personal style, created some internal turmoil early on. Though well-liked, the frustration of feeling like he didn’t belong gave birth to his need to make the world more beautiful, which is as strong as his need to breathe air.

There are many facets to his sartorial expertise, however, he has primarily been a wardrobe stylist for men and women who are in search of an innovative intervention, as he playfully calls it. Spearheading visual schematics for models, artists and other intriguing people enables him to convey his view of the way the world should be, could be, or would be, without burdening viewers and clients with the weight of reality. His work has been published in GQ, Vogue, Marie Claire, and Elle magazines, to name a few. Mickey Freeman also works with a number of celebrities in the entertainment industry.

With my many years of combined experiences of being a wardrobe stylist, he was guided by his intuition to create his own exquisite style of fashion, which is the deviceful moniker he calls his “Utility Kilt line”. His unisex line, FreeMen By Mickey, represents the evolution of the masculine silhouette. The name FreeMen is actually a portmanteau that encompasses his profound belief that every human being should experience freedom, true freedom in their lifetime. FreeMen By Mickey is the exterior manifestation of what Mickey believes should ultimately come from within everyone, everywhere, everyday. His fashion line has been showcased in Bahamas Fashion Week, Dominican Republic, and New York Fashion Week.

While most of his time is spent in New York City, he does make time for traveling. Being an avid traveler, Mickey Freeman has traveled around the world and has experienced many different cultures. “There is always an air of obscurity when I refer to anything that might inspire me” He says. This allows him to easily incorporate fresh new ideas into his work.
