Helen’s website... Helen Martin Style, is dedicated to every woman who chooses to be master of her universe; who understands the meaning of “claiming your space”. Having the confidence to walk into a room and know you look fabulous. Looking good and creating “your own style” frees you up to be bold, to take risks, to relax and enjoy ‘the moment’.
Many of us, want to ‘find that groove’, want to feel, look and act - not younger – but modern, current, active and attractive at any age.
She rejects the notion that some women feel their “glamorous time” has passed. Women and Glamour – it’s the same thing!
We, as women, do not want to look like our daughters, our nieces, dress like the ingénues on the red carpet or try to look younger. We want to find our own personal style, our place; defining us.
Helen Martin hopes to challenge, inform and inspire women of all ages to reach their highest potential.
