“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in New York

by marlies|dekkers

Marlies Dekkers, the cult Dutch lingerie artist, launched her new book ‘Unlock your potential’ on February 27th in the Dream Hotel Downtown, New York City… And what a night it was!

More than 80 guests came out to celebrate, from business women to influencers, journalists and customers…The dynamic crowd of forward thinking NYC women, including Ruthie Davis, Mal Harrison and Frederique van der Wal, truly embraced Marlies’ latest work during the 2 hour interactive workshop.

Marlies guided her audience through every chapter of her book with sometimes very personal examples from her own story to success. From career to family, from health to sensuality, Marlies successfully challenged the crowd to look in the mirror and structure the process of self-realization in life’s most important areas. With many (some very intense) group exercises and a guest performance by musical artist Donna D’ Cruz, the book launch became a special night where women shared some of their deepest desires, erotic fantasies, life’s challenges and even wrote compliments on each other’s bodies, literally!

‘’As masters of our own destiny, the world is asking us to shape a future of opportunity for ourselves. What matters now is action. Action on our part, starting with the woman in the mirror.”

Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”

Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”
