Home Study, Virtual Course

If you can’t make it to any of the Fashion & Style Business Academy courses, the next best thing to studying in person with Wendy is to enrol in her online, virtual course!

Our home study course gives you 12 months instant access to the same material we teach in our face-to-face course, delivered via extensive training notes, audio MP3’s and training videos in a private, members only website.

Study anywhere, anytime and without having to wait for our in-person course dates.

We have full confidence in our course, so if you’d like to speak to one of our past students, just let us know!

“I left the training feeling completely confident that I could conduct a paid styling session. I am so appreciative of your willingness to share your knowledge and skills, as well as the comfortable, supportive environment you set for the training. The weekend far exceeded my expectations, and I would give it my highest recommendation to anyone considering styling as a career – thank you for turning me into a stylist!” Elissa

Exclusive access to The Fashion Stylist Network

On completing the course, you will have instant entry to The Fashion Stylist Network, our networking group for budding, new or established stylists. This is your support network for life.


We share ideas, information, learn and grow with our peers and other like-minded stylists, after all many heads are better than one!

There’s NO time limit to how long you can access this network for, and Wendy plus the women that will be part of your new community are so collaborative and incredibly giving of their time and information, that access to this alone is often one of the most valuable components of the course.

    Wendy, thank you so much for imparting your knowledge to us and doing it so gracefully and professionally.
    I found the 3 days to be well balanced with the practical and teaching. Although it was challenging at times because it tests your confidence, it was a good place to start knowing we had you there coaching us.
    I definitely feel more empowered and confident with what I know and can feel the shift in my confidence when explaining what I am doing with people.
    Thank you again

    hi Wendy-
    I’m interested in doing the face to face fashion stylist course.
    When is the next intake for melbourne?


    1. Wendy Mak Post author

      Hi Tracy,

      Thank you for your email – we apologise for the delay however my training and styling partner Rachel Worden is on maternity leave until later this year. We will keep your details on file to ensure you’re one of the first to know when we have new dates announced!

      In the meantime however, I do have the virtual course available. This covers similar content to the face to face course and allows you to get started instantly with some key knowledge and information that you need now. This way you can commence your study online, and when we have future courses, if you decide to join us we allow you to offset the cost of the virtual course against the in-person course fee.
