Clothing by Anne Valerie Hash.
Since her first fashion show in July, 2000, the designer has been the shooting
star of the French fashion scene. She has developed a unique style based
on deconstructing male clothing. Her first model was a pair of men's trousers
that became a dress. These days she has moved away from walking the line
between male and female fashions and is increasingly integrating light and
feminine elements into her designs like flowing silk, embroidered veils and
braided trimming, although her signature style remains deconstructed male
fashions. In addition to prêt-à-porter collections, Anne Valerie
Hash also creates Haute Couture and in 2008 she was made a permanent member
of the official Haute Couture List. Her unique creations are worn by many
stars, including Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman, Nicole Richie
and Gwyneth Paltrow.
