Alon Livne's new winter collection is bewitching

The new winter collection by acclaimed Israeli designer Alon Livne was inspired by a historical story that took place in 1590 in Scotland, where, according to stories, a group of women, led by Agnes Sampson (a Scottish healer and purported witch), was accused of witchcraft and betrayal by the King of Scotland, James VI and betrayal of the monarchy. Alon Livne 2019 © Adi Segal These women who were suspected of stirring up storms in the sea and causing the ship's fleet to drown, were accused of doing so by performing a worshiping ceremony for the devil that included dance and sex during which they were marked by him in intimate areas of their bodies. Alon Livne 2019 © Adi Segal These signs, which were discovered on the women's bodies, were the ultimate proof of their guilt, and the group was executed. According to the story, Agnes's spirit is still wandering in the palace gardens.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Forbes has hosted a 30 under 30 summit in Tel Aviv, but this one is different. It has the main goal of changing the business world for women all over and helping create investment opportunities as well as promoting women entrepreneurship and mentorship. The guest speakers include Susan Ma, founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare; Charlie Javice, founder and CEO of Frank; Nadia Masri, founder and CEO of Perksy; and more.
