"We service the most important people in the world...babies" says Lynda Fassa, a former Ford model and co-owner and designer for Westchester NY based Green Babies, Inc., a maker of premium certified organic cotton clothes for babies and kids.
"We make very cool, comfortable, attention-getting clothes, out of the finest fiber in the world, organic cotton" says Fassa. "We are thrilled to showcase our bestsellers in Whole Foods Market's Columbus Circle location. Our style with ethics should have terrific appeal to the savvy Upper West side shopper."

over 11 years, Green Babies has offered the world's largest selection of organic cotton clothes for babies and kids, over 70 styles a season and they make it all in the US, production is in New York City and the cutting room is a converted firestation in Tarrytown, NY. up the street from the Fassas home where they raise their three daughters.
Green Babies counts among its celebrity clients, Sandra Bullock,
Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Williams, Jon Bon Jovi and Catherine Denueve.
"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.
