NEWBURYPORT, MA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - The Studio -- -- announced today that it has been named the Best Clothing Store for Women North of Boston in Boston Magazine's Best of Boston 2008 issue. Located in Newburyport, Massachusetts the Studio is dedicated to providing distinctive eco-friendly fashion from contemporary independent designers. This means clothing is made with organic materials or made by designers who employ sustainable production practices offering customers a truly unique shopping experience combining great looks and environmental responsibility. The Studio features popular green fashion brands such as Prairie Underground, Mohop Sandals and hard to find indie brands such as Orla Kiely, Foley and Corinna, Modaspia and Myth and Ritual.

In making their selection, the editors of Boston Magazine noted the Studio's collection of up-and-coming designers and its commitment to green fashion.

"Three questions we've been asking ourselves this year: Is it easy on the environment? Can I get good mileage from it? Does it go with my new Michael Kors espadrilles? At the Studio, a North Shore trendsetter with a pronounced green streak, the answer is a resounding yes. Up-and-coming indie designers like Supermaggie and Prairie Underground lead the way with earth-friendly materials (organic cotton, recycled leather) and socially conscious craftsmanship, yielding fad-free, guilt-free separates, dresses, and jackets that -- unlike that doomed gas-guzzler -- we plan to hang on to for years."

"It is truly an honor to be recognized as the Best of Boston by Boston Magazine," said Kim Gobbi, founder of the Studio. "Receiving this award is truly a testament to the Studio's dedication to the environment and distinctive fashion."

In addition to the brick and mortar store front, The Studio features a newly launched e-commerce site that highlights the shop's ever changing array of green goods by showcasing merchandise in 4 categories -- wear, carry, embellish and adorn.
