          Meet our Founder, Leezette Lopatic

Leezette Lopatic grew up with a passion for the medical field, innovation, and philanthropy.  Her inspiration came from her creative and competitive musician mother, recognized for inventing the original *Choco Taco and winning over 500 contests, cook-offs, and three cars. From a young age, Leezette demonstrated an innate curiosity for new inventions, understanding how things worked and identifying avenues for improvement. 
As a medical consultant, Leezette utilizes her extensive medical start-up and product launch experience to propel the transformative growth of medical practices and start-ups.  With a keen eye for opportunities, she is actively seeking her next venture in the realm of biopharmaceutical medical start-ups.

How Fashion FLEXY® by Haute Things, Inc. Evolved:

Leezette started designing hair accessories with her nieces, as a hobby.  It blossomed into Fashion FLEXY®, a brand of Haute Things, Inc -- matching-themed hair accessories and jewelry.  Soon after her launch, she advanced to the third round of Shark Tank tv show auditions. She invented a patent-pending charm slider (87 designs to match one's mood, personality and outfit) that slide onto hair elastics (hair ties-bracelets) and other materials.  Shark Tank evaluators liked both the multiFUNctional concept for both humans and pets.  Her Breast Cancer Awareness line was one of the their faves.  Haute Things, Inc supports charitable causes, most notably an Angelina Jolie Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser, where Leezette donated 500 hair ties.   Click here to see Leezette's Bichon Frise dog model flaunting her 4-Legged Friend Fashion FLEXY® dog bone hair tie...  Most of her charm slider designs are replicated onto matching-themed earrings, necklaces and baubled bobbies.  Some celebrities from Housewives of OC, Dancing with the Stars, Modern Family, Pussy Cat Dolls, Scandal, two basketball players from Dallas Mavericks, etc are fans and have "Gotten their FLEXY® on!"...  Her unique designs have earned her recognition and praise from the fashion industry.  Her USA-made commitment to using sustainable and eco-friendly materials has made her a role model for responsible fashion.

* Her mother won grand prize for her crunchy Choco Taco invention & willingly forfeited her recipe rights to contest sponsor in lieu of prize winnings.  Her mother then created three winning variations of her Choco Taco for Nestle Chocolate, Hershey Chocolate and Chex Cereal.  Her mother and Chaco Taco were featured on the nationally-televised The Home Show Show in the mid 80's.
