Deborah customises vintage cashmere clothes and remakes it into eye catching and very wearable pieces in her studio in Los Angelus. Her quirky appliques and high quality customisation sets her clothes apart.

I’ve been a fan since coming across Deborah Lindquist at the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris in 2007. It was the colour and designs that I was attracted to as well as this concept of upcycling. Howsoever I am won over to the cashmere side after practically living in my first grey bolero for a Winter. I can vouch for the cosy insulation that comes from a relatively thin layer of clothing.

Frightfully Good Value- Our sale price at only €50 is also frightfully good value – if we do say so ourselves. This is not pittance by any means but a fraction of what you would normally have to pay for a piece by Deborah Lindquist. More importantly these tops are beuatifully made and will not only keep you warm, and be a friend for years to come.

Through the Programme’s extensive network, some of the poorest people in the world now have access to a job. The income earned enables children to attend school. It pays for medical expenses. It ensures other basic needs can be met. All those involved in Vivienne Westwood’s Ethical Fashion Africa collection are empowered by the pride they take in their work and the new skills learnt.The aim is that many will start their own companies and train the next generation of skilled workers, raising the standard of living in one of the world’s most fragile economies.
