The Wardrobe Academy is proud to be teaching and inspiring a generation of outstanding stylists and fashion professionals,
and has quickly become a leading fashion training institute in South Africa, known for its modern and innovative approach and
support of freedom of expression and thought.
Launched in 2008, the Wardrobe Academy was created to cater for a growing
demand for personal stylist training with an up-to-date and fashion-forward ethos
- while this industry has evolved and grown in the last decade, it is generally felt
that the traditional image training available has become quite out-dated and staid in
Since then, The Academy has expanded to offer a broad selection of courses in
Personal & Fashion Styling, Bridal Styling, Personal Styling for men, Fashion
Retailing, Fashion Illustration and corporate training for Fashion Retailers.
These intensive and comprehensive courses offer high caliber training to students,
equipping them with the knowledge, practical skills and confidence needed to
pursue rewarding careers in the exciting world of Fashion.
The Wardrobe Academy has students attending from many other countries, and
was the first South African training institute to offer a Personal Stylist training
program via correspondence, with students currently signed up from South Africa
Zimbabwe, Namibia, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand and Russia.
The Wardrobe Academy is a recognised training provider and an accredited member of the AICI
(Association of Image Consultants International), which gives students the reassurance needed that
the quality of training received is of the highest possible standard and that the Academy conforms
to a code of industry ethics.
The Wardrobe Academy is privately owned and run by renowned stylist, Alice Dunkley, who has over 20 years of fashion styling,
training and business experience. Being active members of their respective industries, Alice and her team are able to share with
students a wealth of valuable information based on their personal knowledge and experience, making these fun and informative
courses a must for all aspiring stylists and fashionista's.
Alice Dunkley, founder of the Academy, is a qualified fashion designer and has enjoyed a
diverse career in many areas of fashion including designing her own range, lecturing in fashion
design and many years working as a wardrobe stylist on commercials, movies and fashion shoots.
Alice is a certified colour consultant and makeup artist and runs The Wardrobe Studio, a style
consultancy in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, offering personal styling for women.
