Alon Livne: An Inspiration to New Designers
DESIGNER: Alon Livné
Here’s a true success story, and an inspiration to new designers.
From intern and to a contestant of Israel’s version of “Project Runway,”
Alon Livne has climbed the fashion ladder to dressing celebrities such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga.
INSPIRATION: George Melford’s 1921 silent film The Sheik, and the romantic tale it told of “early imperialism in Morocco, when the privileged of the world—and their beautiful daughters—journeyed across the sea.” Livné’s gentle, graceful, sincere, and curious muse was brought to life on a journey of “self-discovery into womanhood” with the help of exquisite jewels and head pieces from Efrat Casuto. Perhaps he took a “Grown Woman” cue from Mrs. Carter World Tour client Beyoncé.
TRENDS: Embroidery, beading, Swarovski crystals galore, head pieces, silk, floor-grazing gowns, kaftans
PALETTE: Black, blue, silver, blush, copper, gold
WHO WAS THERE: Paris Hilton, Barron Hilton, Marissa Montgomery, Peyton List
WHO SHOULD WEAR IT: Regal A-listers like Cate Blanchett, a Great Gatsby-era Carey Mulligan, Léa Seydoux
