The Alon Livné Fashion Story

Born in Tel Aviv to Jewish parents with an Egyptian background, his mother a hairdresser and his father a businessman, Alon Livné is an only child who always knew he wanted to become a fashion designer.
At the age of 11, he had already crafted his own illustrated children’s book, and by 13 was already cutting up and sewing clothing from his mother’s and grandmother’s old tablecloths.
Livné studied art and sculpting at various art-oriented high schools and went on to the world-renowned “Shenkar College of Engineering, Design, and Art” to study Fashion Design at the mere age of 17, having already mastered the art of sewing and patternmaking.
Taking inspiration from nature and art, his designs convey a modern-futuristic look with touches of classic gothic aesthetics. His works can be characterized and easily recognized due to their
dramatic sculptural shapes that give the human body new proportions and angles, all while mixing modern technologies such as laser-cutting and 3D-printed leather patterns with uniquely clashing fabrics alongside classic couture sewing techniques.
Livné’s designs constantly manifest the contrast between the soft, feminine, and pleasant and the rough, powerful, and provocative. The designs challenge the viewer and cause wonder whether attraction comes from a need to wear the items or keep them safe and on display as works of art, collector’s items.
Livné has made fabulous designs for some of the most popular celebrities around the world – including Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Naomi Campbell. At Kornit Fashion Week London, his designs were created in just days leveraging the power of Kornit Digital’s on-demand, sustainable production.
