Earlier this year we spoke to Elisabeth Krohn about Sabat magazine, her new imprint dedicated to modern witches. Coming from a fashion background, Elisabeth shows that you can be a witch in brands like Celine and Acne. She trawls through online forums and Instagram and reports on modern witch communities.
