Laura Akkermans

Jr Stylist

My style philosophy is built upon years of working as a personal stylist in the retail environment; I believe in empowering women by teaching you how to build a real working wardrobe that reflects your personality and style rather than just buying clothes that are fine or fit. As a stylist I believe being an instructor is just as important as being a fashion aficionado. 

With more than 10 years in the industry, Suzanne Colmer has passed along her extensive knowledge through intensive one-on-one training in all aspects of Image Consulting. I’ve also completed online training with UK-based members of the International Federation of Image Consultants. I have an honours degree in English Literature from the University of Western Ontario, a post-graduate degree in Corporate Communications, and spent many years working in the field of public relations before taking time off to raise my family. With four kids and a busy household, I am now an expert in getting out the door quickly while still feeling my best. 

Laura was and is amazing. She was so helpful and practical. And you could tell she really enjoys what she does. She’s been great at responding to my questions since we met as well. I have made many updates to my wardrobe already based on her advice and selections and they are really great additions. And I am slowly adding in more. It is so helpful to have the focus she has given me. I also really appreciate the discount on some of the brands of clothing. I bought a great skirt from Miik in a beautiful material. I had NEVER even heard of them.

Laura, I'd like to let you know that the capsule wardrobe was fantastic. Even with just a carry on I had more than enough choices. I kept getting compliments on how nice I looked. You honestly changed my life. I always thought that I needed more clothes  as there was never anything to wear but it's about focusing and having the right pieces. So I'd like to thank you. I think you did a great job. Sometimes you pay for a service and are not 100% satisfied. Well I wanted to let you know that the service exceeded my expectations. I will definitely reach out for any special occasions in the future.

I just wanted to say thanks again, Laura, for your time and advice. Everything you taught me has informed how I am pulling my outfits together every day and what I'm keeping/taking out of my wardrobe. I've gotten 3 unsolicited compliments on my outfit today alone and was able to pull together a semiformal outfit at the last minute for a work event last night (that I felt fabulous in and got great compliments on)!! Thank you thank you thank you for your time and generosity in sharing your knowledge.
