Guest Speakers

Anya Hindmarch CBE, Founder and Chief Creative Officer

Anya Hindmarch’s global luxury accessories brand is loved for its creativity, craftsmanship & personalisation. Following the success of her London Fashion Week shows, she has recently created three ground breaking customer events, Chubby Hearts over London, Chubby Cloud & The Weave Project. The Designer’s collections include Build a Bag, Labelled & Pimp Your Phone – creative concepts that really make women’s lives work.

Dr Meital Oren-Suissa, Department of Neurobiology, Weizmann Institute of Science

A famous American architect, Louis Sullivan, coined the phrase “form follows function.” Dr. Meital Oren-Suissa examines how sex-specific processes are rooted in the design principles of the brain’s neural architecture. Her research may have implications for understanding sex-specific neural dynamics related to Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
