Born in 1984, Tel Aviv, to Jewish parents with an Egyptian background, his mother a hairdresser and his father a businessman, Alon Livné, an only child, always knew he wanted to become a Fashion Designer.
At the age of 11 he already crafted his own illustrated children’s book and by the time he was 13 he 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 Art and Design” 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.
His designs challenge the viewer and cause him to wonder whether his attraction comes from a need to wear the items or keep them safe and on display as works of art, collector’s items.
