Couture Inspiration Dancing Princess

Couture Inspiration Dancing Princess

by Marlies Dekkers
My Dancing Princess collection is designed for free-spirited ladies. I was inspired by the Indian poet-princess Mirabai and the sensuality of her musical art.

Mirabai left palaces and splendour behind to live her days as an artistic nomade. The dancing princess wrote a myriad of songs called bhajans. Entrancing ballades tasting like a masala of spirituality peppered with subtle hints of eroticism. If you listen to Mirabai’s songs you can still imagine her moving to the hypnotic rhythm of her drums and the ecstatic tinkling of her manjira. With this collection I am wrapping you in Mirabai’s nudity while decorating you with regal jewels. Wear my Dancing Princess to practice the art of irresistible seduction.

For the designs of this Fall Winter 2014 collection, I was inspired by the heroic story of Joan of Arc. Reflecting the past years while having experienced all aspects of life, I found this legend of Joan of Arc admirable and inspirational.
