Who We Are
What do you dream about?
Debbie Hodde dreams about fine fabrics...
about feel, soft textures, fit, about pushing the edge, and that perfect custom look. Shapes and patterns that work and make you feel like a million bucks when you step into that show pen or simply step out into the world.
You see it all began when Debbie qualified for the 2010 AQHA World Show on her home bred, raised and trained mare, the much beloved, "Sky" Blue Couture.
She wanted a special, original shirt made for the show and set out looking for the perfect fabric and seamstress. After several stores and lots of searching she met "Aunt Susie" who made Debbie two beautiful and truly unique shirts.
Each time she wore the shirts, people asked her where she had gotten them...
Debbie discovered a desire for a special, custom look in the hunter ring.
Thus, Winning Couture was born. We create custom order hunt coats, mens and womens dress shirts, hunt shirts, shadbelly coats, dressage coats, four button riding coats, winter coats, tailored vests, custom street wear, custom ladies caps and of course, gift certificates. We carry a ready made boutique type line, to have on hand for more traditional clients.
In addition, be sure to look over our always changing selection of custom swatches to achieve that custom, perfect look.
If you dream about having that perfect look designed for you.. let's get started.
On the road...
Samantha Eckert has become Debbie's right-hand in bringing Winning Couture on the road.
Sam grew up showing in the Youth All-Around events on the AQHA circuits in the midwest. She attended and graduated from Murray State University with a degree in Advertising. At Murray, she also competed in the IHSA showing.
Always a big believer in clean lines and simplistic designs, Sam met Debbie at the 2012 NSBA World Show. And, she became part of the Winning Couture team at the 2012 All American Quarter Horse Congress.
Sam pulls "The Lois" (the WC Airstream) down the road with her trusty sidekick Joey! She helps our customers design the perfect ensemble for the show pen and keeps WC running smoothly!
