`I always knew I wanted to be an artist, but hadn’t chosen a direction yet. Should it be a ‘fine art’, like painting or sculpting, or something more ‘applied’, like fashion or industrial design? In art school whilst sketching the models beautiful curves in circular motions, it struck me: what if I used a woman’s body as my canvas?`- Marlies Dekkers.
The concept of designing lingerie and empowering the woman who wore it, completed Marlies’ notion of art. At marlies|dekkers we believe lingerie is about seduction – but you have to seduce yourself first.
Once the brands mission had been found, soon after, three important components that defined the look and philosophy of the brand were born: design, fit and a feminine point of view. These three elements became The Golden Combination and when transformed into our product, a woman feels confident enough to explore our motto: Dare to Dream, Dare to Grow, Dare to Be.
