It was a hot night in Hollywood, but Deborah Lindquist’s grand opening of her eco-conscious clothing store in the heart of the NoHo (North Hollywood) Arts District raised temperatures even higher with her sizzling new collection.

“A lot of organic designers just do a t-shirt type thing. Deborah has a signature style. Her cut is so sexy and she has a way of making things that are classical and yet have a little twist on them, like the classical cashmere cardigan with the skull and cross bones for that rock n’ roll rage,” said Gorgeously Green author, Sophie Uliano who was in town promoting her book in a form-fitting Jackie-O style shift by who else but Deborah Lindquist.

Models greeted guests wearing Deborah’s new collection of sexy corset tops and elegant dresses made and sold at her boutique, accented with eco-jewelry created by Rumblefish. On display was her new line of wedding dresses which were recently seen on The View. “I did a wedding dress at the end of one of my shows. Somehow that dress got on a blog and in the USA Today newspaper and then all of a sudden I got calls from brides wanting my wedding dress and I was only doing one!”

A forerunner of eco-couture, Deborah’s designs have been spotted on Sharon Stone, Alyssa Milano, Gwen Stefani, Keisha Cole and Charlize Theron. She has also extended her line to children and dogs. Her canine fashions have been donned by the pets of Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff.

After taking a tour of her shop and personal work studio, guests were led to a back patio buffet full of organic delights. Sliced cucumbers topped with a mango puree and pita bread with a choice of hummus or baba kanoush made for a cool nosh. Parducci Wines offered Chardonnay. Guests could also quench their thirst with a refreshing pomegranate infused drink or peach infused white tea by Honest Tea, or a lemonade energy drink by Her. Decadent dessert cakes of marble with a chocolate ganache and vanilla buttercream filling, chocolate with raspberry and white chocolate filling, and lemon with lemon and raspberry filling satiated the sweet tooth. Yet, if a slice of cake was too much or not enough, more bite sized morsels of lemon bars, morello cherry short cake, Scottish brownies, and vanilla cupcakes with Viennese buttercream rounded off the delicious offerings.

Live music filled the air while guests perused Deborah’s fashions or munched at the organic fare. While enjoying the launch of this green fashion house, visitors were also treated to a massage. Who knew the grand opening of an eco-fashion house could be so savvy, sexy and relaxing!

Check out her store at 10500 Magnolia Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601, 818-762-7199.
