The Awakening – Marlies Dekkers Legacy

Happy 50th birthday to the best lingerie designer of the Netherlands; Marlies Dekkers! We were from day one, great admirers of your work and fervent buyers of your very contemporary sets. Thank you Marlies for being Marlies and for the inspiring video celebrating feminine feminism and exciting experiment in female power, about women finding their own source of strength.

“Together we can disarm the stereotypes that for far too long has misled our societies; that we (women) don’t have the skills, intelligence or the guts to accomplish.” Marlies Dekkers

The Awakening film is about the feminist legacy she wants to build for women. It’s main purpose is to hopefully inspire other women to act to achieve their own goals, to feed the female forward way of thinking. With this inspiring film we celebrate Marlies’ 50th birthday.

Marlies Dekkers has made her first movie. The short-film is raw and provocative, capturing Marlies Dekkers’ thoughts on modern day feminism. Marlies Dekkers envisioned and created the movie in honor of her 50th birthday, in association with creative studio, Cloudfactory. With this piece of art, she wishes to celebrate feminine feminism, for women worldwide.

“Together we can disarm the stereotypes that for far too long has misled our societies; that we (women) don’t have the skills, intelligence or the guts to accomplish. All we need is females thinking forward: women who understand that equality isn’t dependent on external factors; something passively received or violently acquired. Women who train their minds so that they feel powerful themselves. Women who feel, think and radiate confidence. Not against, but in partnership with men. Ultimately we give progress to ourselves. We are the third movement; females moving forward.” Says Marlies Dekkers.

“The Awakening is not about Marlies’ collections or her past and future plans, it’s about the feminist legacy she wants to build for women. The film is an experiment in female power, about women finding their own source of strength.

Marlies continues to fight for a world in which women free themselves from social and cultural constraints. A world in which women not only dream about their goals, but act to achieve them
