Shop Talk - Sanja Alickovic

Owner, Haute Women’s Boutique

How did you first get involved in the fashion business?
Fashion always played a big role in my life; my mother would dress my sister and I in matching, custom-made outfits. Opening the store two years ago was a lifelong dream come true.

What makes Haute unique?
We focus on designers that you can’t find anywhere else who will deliver a minimalist chic approach to dressing in quality fabrics and impeccable fit.

What are the trends for 2014?
Tennis-inspired sweaters, everything with fringe, crop tops, embroidered florals and art-inspired prints. Embellishment too, whether it’s plastic paillettes or jewels on sport sandals, bling is the new thing.

What are you most excited about in the store?
Wide-leg pants paired with crop tops or a shift blouse.

How do you pick your designers and collections?
We always ask ourselves “Can we see our customers wearing this?” “Am I dying to have in my closet?”

Your best sellers this year?
Cocktail dresses by Mason, silk printed tops and dresses by Gypsy 05 and vintage-inspired jewelry by Dora Mae.

Who is your fashion or style icon?
Victoria Beckham because she’s flawless, her style is minimalist and yet beautiful and elegant.


How would you describe style in New Orleans?
Eclectic! Only in New Orleans do you require a tutu for day and a ball gown for evening! New Orleans’ romantic, Southern style is infused with a coolness and edge you see in L.A.

Do you think the fashion scene is changing here, if so how?
Yes, we have more local talent than ever, including local showrooms.
