Fair & Equal
In 2018 we integrated our CSR strategy into our company goals. We’ve connected with the right partners such as Modint to support us in our CSR journey.
We are also a member of Amfori-BSCI, an independent organization which verifies that our factories operate in an ethical and social responsible way.
Our sewing facilities and practices are checked regularly by us and our partner in Asia.
At the headquarters of marlies|dekkers we’ve set up a Sustainability Project Group (SGP) with representatives from every department. The SGP meets up every month to monitor the progress.
Besides creating 5 year CSR plan with our long term goals, we have created a reciprocal Code of Conduct. Being fair and equal to us means being a business partner who respects and values its partner ships.
NO ONE like me
As liberal and open-minded as Marlies Dekkers is now, during her childhood she was equally conservative. “Every night, I would be on my knees, praying my Hail Marys.” Still, that period is precious to her; it has shaped her into the power woman she is now. This year, Marlies celebrates being in business for 25 years, the perfect opportunity to look back at her milestones.
Governed by NO ONE
Flame-haired, brave-hearted and always dressed to dazzle, Elizabeth the First, also known as England’s ‘Virgin Queen’, is one of the most unforgettable women in history. Her glorious reign is known as The Golden Age ~ a period that saw the birth of Shakespeare, the defeat of the Spanish Armada and the emergence of England as a world power. It lasted almost 45 years; Elizabeth’s legacy as a feminist icon however, has already spanned nearly 5 centuries. “My sex cannot diminish my prestige.”
Only 11 days after he beheaded his second wife (the flamboyant Anne Boleyn), King Henry VIII married a pale, fair-haired maiden called Jane Seymour. Who exactly was this girl, and what had made the king so besotted with her? To this day, historians don’t quite know what to make of her.
