My new couture collection is an ode to Frida’s ability to transform her pain -both physical and emotional- into stunning beauty. The combination of form- finessing shape and opulent details refer to the way Frida defiantly decorated the corsets that held her body together. Satin lacing and voluptuous embroidered fruits capture Frida’s unbroken spirit and sensuality. Wear my Frida Couture and feel the joy and urgency of Frida’s message: ‘Viva la vida!’. Live life to the fullest, now!

The delicate embroidery of this collection takes the utmost precision to place and sew. To continue the embroidery onto straps dyed yarn is used on a white strap. After embroidering the strap is dyed. The once light pink yarn will turn up darker than the straps creating the subtle color difference.

All eyelets you see in this collection are carefully placed by hand. The right distance between the eyelets must be kept at all times, all must be perfectly aligned. The beautiful satin ribbon is then woven through the eyelets. Once again done by hand, to ensure the ribbon lays flat and laces up evenly.

Marlies about couture

All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses. Powerful female icons from past and present. Although women have been marginalised for centuries, archetypes of female power have always been there. Through my designs, I bring them to you. To help us shape the world of modern-day feminism.
