London, England, Feb 2, 2012 / 01:32 am America/Denver (CNA).
A London fashion designer is teaching young women to dress virtuously, after her brother's death made her rethink her life and career.
“I want to invest some time and love into the next generation,” said Helena Machin, who also works with high-profile clients as the creative director for a French milliner. Through her “Style Masterclasses,” she is showing women how to be “well-dressed” in every sense of the word.
“I want to have them embrace their femininity by modest and attractive dress and in doing so, fulfill their God-given potential,” Machin recently told CNA.
Helena came up with the masterclass idea after her twin brother James passed away from a terminal illness three years ago.
“He spent his life serving others, showing them the way to Christ through his heroic example, despite being unwell for a lot of the time,” she recalled. “Through his good humor and good example he brought many people back to their faith.”
