about hocThe Mother-Daughter design team of Diannetta Chargois and Tramaine Chargois Singleton began designing clothing over twenty years ago in Beaumont, TX. Their knack for fashion and interest in helping women and men obtain clothing they desired prompted them to open Smiles Artisans. They relocated their business to Houston, Texas in 2001 under the name of Spoiled by Design Originals (SBD) offering services to those who:

• want unique custom clothing;
• can’t seem to be able to find the “right” look;
• have a special occasion to attend and desire the perfect outfit

SBD started providing custom clothing, designer handbags and accessories to fit every need.

In 2007 when Tramaine got married, SBD added tuxedos, bridal and formal wear sales and rentals to their repertoire of services with the formation of SBD Formal Wear and SBD Something Borrowed.

In 2011, SBD opened its Houston museum district design studio and created The House of Chargois. The House of Chargois, which includes HOC Originals, HOC Formalwear, HOC Bridal, HOC Vintage Boutique and Simply Beautiful Designs (HOC’s ready-to-wear collection), is actually five boutiques in one and continues to provide fashion design/consultation, bridal and formal wear and vintage couture sales and rentals.

2018 brought new opportunities for The HOC – the opening of their On-Line store “shophouseofchargois.com was launched.  Customers may view, order and inquire about Ready to Wear merchandise.  Coming Spring 2019 the On-Line “Red Carpets and Weddings (RAW)” site will be opened.  Clients will be able to rent or purchase Red Carpet gowns and Wedding attire online.


The HOC  Motto is “Making you look FABULOUS for any occasion!!!!!
