LINdQUIST
I grew up on a farm in rural Minnesota,” explainsCalifornia-based designer Deborah Lindquist,whose childhood consisted of “climbing trees andcoming up with constant creative projects.” One ofthose projects was sewing, which a then 5-year-oldLindquist learned from her grandmother. “I made dollclothes, and then clothing for myself. We had anamazing stash of vintage clothing in the attic,” sherecalls.And that’s really how—and where—a love of natureand vintage all began for Lindquist. Her appreciation ofvintage fabrics blossomed into her teen years, and sheeven launched a trend—unbeknownst to her at thetime.“I remember being fairly creative about my fashionapproach,” says Lindquist, who, in the 70s, once wore“a lime green skirt with a purple bodystocking and amatching scarf,” that made her best friend cringe.When Lindquist spotted the exact same outfit in afashion magazine; she knew she was on to somethingbig—and colorful.She relocated to New York in the 80s, attendedfashion design school, and started out as an accessoriesdesignerbefore transitioning into eco-friendly clothes.She’s currently one of LA’s most popular environ-mentally-conscious designers, and creates clothingusing a mix of recycled, sustainable and organic fabrics.“The 80s was a great time,” recalls Lindquist. “Theeconomy was good, customers wanted to buy luxurygoods, and there were many young designers likemyself launching businesses and creating interestingthings.”Today, Lindquist creates clothing that is more highfashion. “The added bonus is that it’s green. Beinggreen is part of my lifestyle at home—the way I eat,what products I use to clean my house… So, it makessense for me,” she says, adding, “In the fall/winter line, I create and cut a LOT of appliqués since its cash-mere season. The garment shapes are simple andbasic—cardigans, pullovers. The detail is in the appliquéembellishment.”
