" 2018 was the year God rebuilt and relaunched my life. As I created this capsule collection for Beauty by God, God broke my mold and recreated my hair and healed my heart. I went to the Onething conference praying for a miracle and started the year immersed in Esther's prayer, asking the King to save my people. I think its important to pray prayers that can only be fulfilled through God working through you, your children, and your children's children. When you look far, it calls on God to help you take your next step. I love that art challenges you to express who God is, yet it requires humility and faithfulness to the smallest of details. He must increase but I must decrease! I feel so close to God when I'm making creative decisions. It was one of the most difficult yet invigorating challenges. These dresses made me realize I'm a part of a story that is so much bigger than what I could possibly imagine." Ye Hee Jung, winner of Beauty by God fashion contest.
Beauty by God Fashion Show and Encounter in February 2019
Washington DC, USA
Thank you for your prayers and support of the Beauty by God project.
As Christians we support young designers to create with inspiration in God’s source Bible.
Our project team spent ten days in Washington DC, USA the house full of smiles, laughter and tears, prayers and worries, lace and silk, serious stories and jokes. Our big table had next to each other beautiful Korean-Turkish meals cooked with love, incredibly advanced video equipment from London, piles of beads for decorations and open Bibles, all covered by God’s light, His gentle touch and presence. All those days our team of Americans, Russians, Ukrainians, Englishmen and Korean walked hand in hand overcoming cultural, language differences, trusting Christ in our hearts.
The main fashion show was held on Sunday February 24 in French Embassy as part of Washington Fashion Week 2019 Haute Couture division. Despite the turmoil we felt great joy from God. Suddenly people around started smiling. After the show models did thank us for the joy to show dresses from Beauty by God designers.The collections received most of ovations and we were congratulated with real success. We can strongly stand with God’s word in the world shaken by economy, ecology and belief crises. God is a creator who gave us an ability to create new and beautiful things.
