“All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses, powerful female icons from past and present,” says cult
Dutch underwear artist Marlies Dekkers. “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.” Marlies Dekkers was born in 1965 and graduated from the Academy of Art with a distinction in 1991. She launched her ‘Undressed’ lingerie collection two years later with the help of a grant. With her modern vision on lingerie, she started a small lingerie revolution in the Netherlands and later throughout the rest of the world.
