"I started the business right after I left modeling to have my first

baby--I knew organic was important for babies, I only bought Earth's

Best baby food, and when I found out cotton is the second most pesticide laden crop in the world, and number one in America, I was amazed--and I thought other people would be, too." Lynda partners in the business with her husband, Hossein, a theater director who formerly ran The Stella Adler Conservatory in Manhattan.

"I'm a conceptualist and he's a real stickler for quality--a perfectionist--so it makes the clothes better"

"People think it was a major change to move from modeling and theater to the organic lifestyle we have now, but it really isn't--cool baby clothes are still fashion--the little people are so wonderful and gorgeous they're like movie stars--and there's lots of drama in what we do" says Fassa.
