Marlies Dekkers, a true luminary in the world of luxe lingerie, combines provocative femininity with girlish innocence to herald a distinct approach to lingerie design that celebrates the strength, independence, and allure of the modern female.

Since its birth in 1993, the Marlies Dekkers brand has accrued 1000 points of sale worldwide, as well as stores in Amsterdam, Paris, Bangkok, and New York. Her unyielding quest to find the perfect fit, and dedication to detailed workmanship, has set Marlies Dekkers ahead of her contemporaries.

With a global following of adoring fans, including A-list celebrities like Rihanna, Pink and Britney Spears, and a handful of awards under her belt – such as Elle magazine’s Innovator of the Year, and Veuve Clicquot’s Businesswoman of the Year – the Marlies Dekkers story, is one of sky-high success.
