The AllBright, a network and buzzing community creating opportunities for women to thrive and flourish through their members’ clubs and digital education platform, swung open its doors to its second female-only members club, The AllBright Mayfair, on 9 May 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited!
The AllBright Mayfair follows the success of the launch of The AllBright’s first location on Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia on International Women’s Day last year. This big next step certainly allows the company to further develop its commitment to championing and nurturing female talent, offering another elegant space where women can put the work in, network, unwind and be inspired. The AllBright’s first international club, The AllBright West Hollywood, will open in Los Angeles in July 2019. You go girls!!
From entrepreneurs to executives, freelancers to thought-leaders, The AllBright attracts smart, ambitious trailblazers across myriad industries and is dedicated to creating opportunities for women to flourish and advance in their profession through upskilling, mentoring and facilitating moments of connectivity and collaboration via the AllBright Academy and their members’ clubs.
The AllBright Mayfair
Situated in the heart of Mayfair at 24-26 Maddox Street, the 12,500sq ft. building spans five floors has been designed by women, for women. The AllBright Mayfair will serve as a home away from home for members and includes a European brasserie-style restaurant and bar, an entire floor dedicated to wellness with a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a co-working space with an in-house career coach and two large roof terraces with views over the Mayfair rooftops.
Designed by renowned interior designer Suzy Hoodless, one of London’s leading innovators in the design field, the interior have been inspired by the female tailoring of Savile Row and the style and craftsmanship of the luxury shops and art galleries that populate the surrounding area. The spaces have been shaped to support members’ busy lifestyles; whether they are working, making new connections or taking time out to relax with a glass of sauvignon blanc.
Named after the former USA Secretary of State, Madeline Albright, who famously said ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women’, The AllBright was founded by serial entrepreneur Debbie Wosskow OBE and former CEO of Hearst UK, Anna Jones, to help women build the skills, confidence and connections they need to super-charge their careers and businesses.
The AllBright is committed to facilitating networking and nurturing women in their careers. The new space has been created to inspire this. By day the third floor will be a dedicated space for working, mentoring and coaching (AllBright members will gain exclusive access to an in-house Career Coach), with a sleek communal table and cosy individual workstations. By night it will become an intimate socialising area, where members can meet for book groups or wine clubs and bring in guests for informal, after-hours fun and relaxation.
Events and Programming
Throughout the club, members and their guests can expect an exciting and varied events programme from film screenings, live music and comedy nights, to professional development workshops, debates and self-care seminars by leading industry experts.
In addition and to kick off their events programme at the new club, AllBright have partnered with The AllBright magazine’s cover girl, who will take over The AllBright Mayfair on 16th May for a day of discussions, workshops and events in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week.

About 58 Lifestyle
Michal Cohen-Sagi spent 16 years working for leading international corporate companies, travelling the world, eating sporadically and unhealthily, until the effects started to take their toll on her health. What ensued was a voyage of self-discovery as Michal looked to regain a positive state via the path of natural medicine and alternative therapies. This “reset” of her mind and body further encouraged her decision to open the first clinic under the 58 London umbrella; the 58 South Molton Street Wellbeing Clinic was launched in conjunction with Michal’s husband, leading psychotherapist Noam Sagi. In 2015, Michal created the 58 Lifestyle sustainable luxury pampering collection of skincare, bathing and home scent products to bring wellness and rebalance at home or away. T
