Susan Zemaitis, Founder and Designer

Meet Our Team

Susan Zemaitis developed a love for apparel design and fashion at an early age when designing and sewing with her grandmother. These cherished moments created an underlying passion that would forever form the way Susan thought about clothing and design.

Susan, a successful sales and marketing executive, is familiar with the needs of her clientele: the professional, sophisticated, fashion conscious, busy woman. 

Zemaitis began with a T-shirt line called "En Vie" to provide women with that perfect staple piece necessary in every wardrobe. More than a decade later, she finds herself coupling her love of international fashion and her passion for design with her new line, Evolue Apparel.

"Evolue", literally translated, is French for "to evolve". This serves as the perfect moniker for Susan's line of chic separates and dresses with thoughtful details. These pieces are of the quality of  fashion she would buy internationally.

These pieces, when integrated into an existing wardrobe, can elevate and evolve a woman's style. In turn, creating sleek, easy, comfortable and effortlessly polished looks for all women.


Classic shapes and thoughtful details make Evolue pieces the backbone of a successful wardrobe
