​​​Meet Our Designers

​​Debbie Evans  A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana who has lived on the Northshore of Lake Ponchartrain for over 30 years.  With a degree in Nursing from LSU Medical Center, she remains a vital part of her husband's Physical Therapy Practice.  Sewing and fashion design has always been her passion.  Her involvement in a local Northshore Mardi Gras Krewe helped fuel her passion for designing and creating masks and headpieces using exotic feathers and opulent accessories.  Prior to a trip to Disney for a niece's wedding, she designed and created hats for each attendee at a Madhatter’s Bridal Luncheon.  Thus, the idea of "hat making" was born.  After sharing her dream with her dear friend, Suzy, and combining their creativity and love of design and rich inspirations of New Orleans..Haute Dames Couture~Couture Millinery became a reality. 

Suzy Capitelli  Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Suzy studied art at the University of New Orleans. After making Baltimore, Maryland  her home for a few years,  her  father-in-law once told her,  “New Orleans girls always come home”.  She now resides in Covington, La., just 40 miles north of the city with her husband and children and new granddaughter. Suzy not only paints, but designs painted glassware & ceramics, jewelry and handbags.  However, her passion is painting.  Suzy’s art infuses New Orleans tradition with elements of contemporary  high design.  The New Orleans themed pieces reflect not only how things once were, but more importantly, how things will be again.
