LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2008 / FW / — One of the first eco-friendly fashion designers long before the term “environmentally friendly fashion” was coined, Deborah Lindquist celebrates the opening of her eco-conscious clothing store in the North Hollywood Arts District with the launch of a ‘green’ custom made dresses collection.

The boutique, which will be open its doors on May 17, 2008, features Deborah Lindquist’s collection for women, children and dogs plus the newly launched custom made and special occasion dresses, an off shoot of the designer’s green wedding collection.

The new boutique has all the charm you would expect from Deborah Lindquist including a tucked away personal work studio in back that is where all the green magic happens.

The boutique is a one-stop shop for everything in eco-couture. Whether it’s a pre-loved cashmere cardigan, peace silk blouse, or a couture wedding dress, at Deborah’s boutique everyone can be fashionable and kind to Mother Earth at the same time.

A graduate of Parson’s School of Design, Deborah Lindquist had been working with pre-loved fabric for the past 25 years, incorporating recycled cashmere, repurposed sari, kimonos and vintage scarves in her creations. In 2004, she launched her eco-conscious clothing line that combines environmental responsibility with a cutting-edge aesthetic

Deborah Lindquist has made green living a top priority in her personal life as well as in her professional life. It is her passion for the planet and the natural beauty of her home in the west coast that inspires her collections season after season.

Bridging the gap between being responsible to our planet’s well being while staying ahead of current trends, Deborah is at the forefront of the green clothing movement, making an impact with her eco-friendly line while staying true to her love of the environment.

With that kind of design philosophy, it is not surprising that the gala opening of her boutique will feature goods donated by organic and eco companies. Organic wine and tea will be offered by Parducci Wines and Honest Tea while Whole Foods will serve a delicious array of veggie platters. Relaxing massages will be given by Green Bliss Eco Spa in the Yoga Groove studio next door to Deborah’s boutique.

The beautiful flowers on display will be provided by 1 800 Flowers and arranged courtesy of Flowers by Dan. Madison Tattoo Shop is also helping sponsor the celebration and author Sophie Uliano will attend the opening to sign copies of her book “Gorgeously Green” as seen on Oprah.
