Designer

The evening will be highlighted by a fashion show featuring L.A. Models and the new couture collection of Los Angeles-based designer Deborah Lindquist. Eco-friendly designer Deborah Lindquist first launched her couture-inspired collection in 2004 and has since shown at L.A. Fashion week, the Pret a Porter in Paris and for numerous eco-conscious benefit events. Deborah’s women’s collection combines environmental responsibility with a cutting-edge aesthetic. She works her fashion magic with a mixture of environmentally-friendly fabrications, including recycled cashmere, repurposed kimonos and saris, vintage silk scarves, and sustainable materials such as hemp, soy, and bamboo. The resulting designs are as striking as they are ecologically sensitive. As a trailblazer at the forefront of the stylish green clothing movement, Deborah is making an impact in the fashion world while remaining true to her love for the environment. Celebrity fans include Sharon Stone, Hayden Panetierre, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Carmen Electra and many more.

Featured Art Auction

Losing his grandmother to breast cancer several years ago, artist Phil Barnes of Northridge chose to be involved in Fashion for the Cure as a personal statement to the love of his family member. "I express deeply through my art where designing a piece for the branding and fundraising of the event is truly quite an honor and act of my compassion," comments Phil. His acrylic painting dedicated to the event, "One Love" which will be auctioned off at the event, represents the victorious, healing, yet feminine essence of those affected by breast cancer.
