Stylist Samantha Descoteaux's natural gift for style resulted in a decade of wardrobe consulting for a growing list of personal clients. Today, Samantha has turned her talent for style consulting into her second career, bringing the dedication and personalized care from her medical background into this field.

Samantha’s keen eye for shape, function and versatility translates to any body type and a variety of life-style needs. As she is both knowledgable on current trends and sensible about classic looks, Samantha helps her clients streamline their existing wardrobe while adding new, carefully chosen, value-minded pieces. While Samantha resides primarily in Calgary, she also spends considerable time in the Edmonton area. We're thrilled that Samantha is able to extend expert style advice to more men and women across Alberta. At any budget, and for any day-to-day or special event need, Samantha’s clients’ new found confidence in their clothing is what brings her joy.
