Breaking into the industry was a chance encounter for Ms. Samois. Her aunt had come to visit and had circled a position for a colorist in the New York Times. Ms. Samois’ aunt pointed out that she would be a good candidate for this position as she always had a good sense of color. What has ensued is a career she loves spanning more than five decades. Earlier in her career, she worked as a colorist for Old Deerfield Fabrics and then worked for Everfast and in the late 1960s with Cohama. From 1969 to 1974, she provided her services as a stylist for Cyrust Clerk. In 1974, she took on the roles of design director and stylist for Brunschwig & Fils.
Also related to her career, Ms. Samois developed musical portraits of people with the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. She has also contributed to Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Old Westbury Gardens. Furthermore, Ms. Samois has been instrumental to fabric and wallpaper collections based on historical documents for the Brighton Pavilion in England. With her vast knowledge and expertise in the industry, she has spoken at the American Association for Textile Colorists & Chemists and conducted seminars for the Philadelphia College of Science and Textiles.
On top of this work, Ms. Samois was a teacher of art to the handicapped at the Bird S. Coler Hospital early in her career. She has also been an active community member with the West Side Block Association. To further her skills and network in her profession, she has maintained affiliation with the National Home Fashions League and the American Society of Interior Designers.
