“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in New York
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.”
– Marlies Dekkers
The ‘Unlock Your Potential’ life journal is now available to purchase on our website.

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.
