Grand couturier Anne Valerie Hash has a strong passion to work in fashion design with inspiration stemming from famous designers of this century such as Yohji Yamamoto, Martin Margiela, Albert Elbaz and Chanel.
She explains that Haute Couture is about dreaming and pushing forward the boundaries of technique, to create a dress especially made for an individual. The dress will make the person feel more confident and act as the person’s layer of protection.
“Haute Couture is not only embroidery. It is a spirit. It comes from technique, the traditional French art of cutting and sewing that needs to be fully mastered, and then fantasy that becomes as important. It is about searching for elegance and its vast palette of possibilities. The final result has to be as light as champagne bubbles.” -Anne Valerie Hash
Discretion was key to this collection with intricate folded pleats on feminine dresses and flowing skirts which fitted the female silhouette immaculately. Rich colours of pink, red and silver gave warmth to Haute Couture dresses by Anne Valerie Hash.
