“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in Amsterdam

by marlies|dekkers

The second workshop and launch of Marlies’ new book ‘Unlock your potential’ is a fact!

After successfully unlocking some serious female potential in New York, Marlies proudly introduced her new book for the first time in Europe, on March 18th in Amsterdam… and the turn up was incredible! An energetic crowd of over 60 guests varying from business women to influencers and editors to customers, undeniably embraced Marlies’ latest work during the 2-hour interactive workshop. And even national TV (RTL boulevard) paid tribute by airing the launch for 850.000 viewers the same night!

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 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 powerful guest performances by Amanda Rijff, Tanja Jess, Heleen Mees and Antoinette van den Berg, the book launch became the second memorable day where women dared to share 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.

You may not think of Frida Kahlo as a typical gardener – can you imagine her in rubber boots? – but together with her beloved Diego she turned the garden of their ‘Casa Azul’ into a luscious paradise of locally sourced flora.

Ruthie Davis is just like the amazing shoes she designs: daring, empowering and totally fabulous. After making Reebok hip again and completely revamping Uggs, she launched her own brand 10 years ago and quickly became the go-to designer for feminine feminists like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. I met up with the American style maven in New York where we discovered we have a lot in common. Ruthie: “Fashion can be a tough game! I’m proud to still be standing… in my six-inch heels!”
