WELCOME TO AFS.
The Academy of Fashion Styling (AFS) is proud to be teaching and inspiring a generation of outstanding stylists and fashion professionals, and has quickly become a leading training institute in South Africa, known for its modern and innovative approach and support of freedom of expression and thought.
First launched in 2008 the academy was created to cater to a growing demand for stylist training with an up-to-date and fashion-forward ethos. AFS has since expanded to offer a broader 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 calibre training to students, equipping them with the knowledge, practical skills and confidence needed to pursue rewarding careers in the exciting world of fashion and styling.
An increasing number of both men and women from all walks of life are seeing the benefits of hiring a personal stylist. From huge financial savings through carefully planned purchases, a wardrobe that makes getting dressed effortless and the pleasure of knowing that you can be confident you look your best in everything you own, to name but a few – making this an industry with growing interest and scope.
This course was invaluable and to a high standard, everything was done professionally
without sacrificing the fun factor. All of my expectations were surpassed and I am now even more motivated to pursue a career in styling – It has boosted my confidence as a stylist and makes me feel well-equipped for the industry. Thank you so much Alice.
