The air is cool and calm. You close your eyes and hear the sounds of crashing waves and seagulls surrounding you. This is the perfect day at the beach, but suddenly there's a burst of lightning and a girl emerges in a flowing teal dress. You snap to and realize this is just another day in the life of designer Deborah Lindquist.
Deborah made quite the impression at The Mercedes Benz Fashion Show on October 18th. Cleverly named 'Sirens of Spring,' the show distributes the title in several ways. Each model that begins her walk of glory is draped in beautiful clothing that has been recycled from silk scarves, and also incorporates stones, shells and hemp.
Their hair is long and tousled, and intertwined with objects such as string and shells. There is an extremely natural and vintage allure as Deborah chooses soft colors and flowing apparel. Most of the clothing seen in the show consists of cashmere, corsets and skirts.
Model Nakiesha struts her stuff on the runway in a Raffia bra, and a peace silk applique. Glowing Model Zjenya comes out dressed in a beaded silk chiffon and velvet bustier, as well as a silk organza skirt. In the background soft, harmonic music makes you feel as if you're taking a sneak peak into what will fill the beaches this coming spring.
Both eco-friendly and fashion savvy, her sense of style makes an intense impression on any eyes that come across it. The designer's clothing has been seen on such celebrities as Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Christina Applegate, and Lucy Liu, all of which are fans of her organic threads, and her clothing has also been featured in shows such as Charmed and growing up Gotti.
As much as Deborah enjoys making a statement in fashion, it's also essential for her to make a positive statement towards the environment. Deborah seems to be on the cutting edge of fashion as well as helping the world, and I wouldn't be surprised to see many of her outfits coming to a store near you. From trekking the jungles of Costa Rica to turning heads on the runway, Deborah Lindquist is on a platform all her own.
