Deborah Lindquist, Eco-Couture Bespoke Designer
The term “environmentally conscious” aptly describes Deborah Lindquist’s Eco Couture line. All of her fashion-forward garments are crafted exclusively from a blend of upcycled and or sustainable organic textiles made from earth-friendly processes without the use of pesticides, herbicides or other toxic chemicals.
After training at Parsons School of Design in New York City, Lindquist began her career designing unique Milanese accessories and launched her own fashion line in Los Angeles in 1989. Since then, her edgy, elegant design aesthetic has garnered a following of celebrity clientele including Sharon Stone, Pink, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, among others. Huffington Post, LA Times, Elle, Lucky, In Style, WWD, LA Brides, Rock&Roll Bride, Brokeass Bride, Ecouterre and Good Morning America are just some of the media that have featured her work.
Of all of the designers we sourced, Lindquist has by far the largest collection of couture gowns made of a variety of hemp silk blends. Similar in look and feel to fine linen, hemp is one of Lindquist’s favorite sustainable fabrics and is often the main ingredient used in her formal couture and wedding dress collections.
While some of her garments for sale on her website can be reproduced, most of her couture garments are exclusively bespoke, custom made to order for her clients in her Los Angeles studio. Her formal gowns range from $600 to more than $2,000 depending on the detail. However, we spied a must-have little black dress made of a hand-beaded hemp/silk satin for only $120.
We noticed that Deborah Lindquist recently launched new line of eco-friendly lifestyle-wear called “Green Queen” featuring hemp including crochet dresses, swimwear, apparel for yoga and dance and other casual basics, all for very reasonable prices.
