Expect the Unexpected
Toni Duclottni is a native of Dallas, TX and not the Dallas thought of as BIG 10 gallon cowboy hats, horses, and cows, but the Dallas where boots and buckles meet stilettos and Gucci. Growing up, Barbie wasn’t exactly a coveted toy on the Christmas list. It actually looked more like a school supply list and retail clothing haul. As the daughter of a former Xerox employee, computers and technology easily became a first love alongside a hearty appetite for fashion.
After many career moves from Sound Engineer to Graphic Designer / Marketing guru, Toni Duclottni is now the proud founder of House of Haute, Inc, (HOH) a fashion haven for style and how-to advice. HOH was founded by what seemed to have been an accident. After a 7-year stint owning a graphic design based marketing firm, Toni Duclottni decided that it was time to focus on family and doing something that she was 100% passionate about. It took less than 2 months for destiny to hit. Out comes House of Haute, Inc from the marriage of Fashion and Technology. As the leader of Team Haute™, Toni continuously educates her faithful following of over 19,000 on fashion trends, current styles, faux-pas, bargains, creating economy friendly wardrobes and even on empowering the sisterhood (and brotherhood) of fashion. She has dedicated her life and passion to change the world one pair of shoes at a time.
“In addition, Toni Duclottni has sat on the board of the Uptown Rotary (Dallas), a former member of The Fashionistas, the founder of Charity H.Y.P.E. and a contributor and sponsor to The American Foundation of the Blind (Dallas), Legal Hospice Foundation, Minnie’s Food Pantry, The Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities, St. Phillips School, The Diamond Empowerment Fund, Dress for Success, Art Advocacy and The Margarita Society/ Dallas Children’s Charities. Outside of being involved with many charities, each Christmas Toni and her two boys choose a recipient for their annual toy donation.
“From the words of famed Coco Chanel, “I don’t do Fashion, I am Fashion”, I have chosen to be who I am, not who others think I should be.” ~Toni Duclottni
