Who’s that girl?
With abundant aspirations and limited time, the life of Aletté-Johanni Winckler, a dynamic entrepreneur, perfectly embodies the phrase “so much to do, so little time.” Noteworthy as the wife of singer/pastor Heinz Winckler, Aletté has carved a significant niche for herself as an accomplished author and businesswoman.
Having graduated in journalism, she initially navigated the corporate world but yearned for greater freedom. Aletté’s journey into image consulting and fashion styling paved the way for her entry into the entertainment sector, where she flourished as a TV presenter and motivational speaker. This trajectory inspired her to pen three self-help/motivational books for women.
Beyond literary accomplishments, Aletté is the proud owner of the Lulla-Bible, a lullaby children’s book range that has achieved remarkable success, selling over 100,000 copies across South Africa, the USA, Australia, and the UAE. This phenomenal achievement marks her as a three-time best-selling author and songwriter.
In 2021, Aletté added to her repertoire with the release of a daily devotional for women in Afrikaans. Furthermore, February 2022 witnessed the launch of her collaborative marriage book, “Kom ons praat oor die huwelik,” co-authored with Heinz Winckler.
Aletté achieved her AICI CIP certification in October 2022, elevating her professional credentials and solidifying her status as the highest-certified image consultant in Africa. Her multifaceted journey is a testament to her relentless pursuit of excellence across various domains.

Dear Alette. I trust you are well. I attended a Masterclass at your home in December 2021. I received it as a gift from a friend. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the change you made to my life, the confidence you gave me in just one session. The experience and knowledge I received from you completely changed my life and it came at a time when I was at my lowest and needed it the most. I am eternally grateful for what you meant to me. The only way I can show my gratitude is to send these few words and to pray success over your life. For the first time in my life, after wearing a dress at school, I have the courage to wear a dress, because I now know what colour suits me. I learnt to look beautiful for me and to carry myself with confidence. It was the best experience of my life! I follow the colour palette and changed my hair colour to warm blonde, as you suggested. Thank you for lifting my spirit. May you be very successful and make many more women feel as beautiful as I do.

Certified Image Consultant
Being a trained Image Consultant in South Africa does not give you a lot of credibilities unless you have the backing of a more significant body of certification and standards. This body is called the AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) in the image consulting world. Any Image Consultant can become a member of the AICI, but if you want to become certified through them, there are a few hoops you need to jump through. The first level of Accreditation and Certification requires you to write a 3-hour exam and also hand in a portfolio proving your skills, experience, expertise, education, continual education and overall legitimacy as an Image Consultant. To write the exam, you must read multiple books on Style, Colour, Makeup, Men’s Style, Civility, Etiquette, Body Language and Ethics.
Aletté went to the USA to write these exams during the AICI’s biannual international conference and passed her exams. She also passed the portfolio and was the First AICI CIC (Certified Image Consultant) Trainer in South Africa. The next level is becoming a CIP (Certified Image Professional), and she obtained this status in October 2022, making her the highest-certified image consultant in Africa.
