The ceremony took place at the Parisian 'Musee d'Art modern' where Marlies Dekkers was handed the trophy on behalf of the mayor of Paris together with other international designers, each specialized in different fields of design.
The Dutch lingerie designer was chosen because of the innovative styles of her lingerie, its creativity in design and print that distinguish it amongst other fashion brands. In fact 'Your body, my canvas' is Marlies creative way to celebrate and emphasize women's beauty by underlining the most beautiful parts of their bodies.
Marlies Dekkers was awarded by the SIL (Salon International de la Lingerie) organisation which means during all the year she will play the leading role in the lingerie communication campaign of 'Paris Capitale de la Creation', the association that organizes all the fashion trade shows in Paris.
Marlies Dekkers feels honoured to have been awarded 'Creator of the Year' in the lingerie capital of the world. Definitely the greatest challenge for a lingerie designer!
