An essential creator of the French scene, Anne Valérie Hash is one of the rare houses to have obtained the prestigious Haute Couture label.

Deconstructing the garment to better reconstruct it, it combines opposites: male-female, strength-fragility, avant-garde-tradition, adulthood-childhood, opacity-transparency, pleated-smoothed, symmetry-asymmetry… A taste for contrasts unified by powdered or felted colors, traditional or technical materials always sober and refined (tulle, lace, satins…). Between purity and lace, the Anne Valérie Hash silhouette is resolutely contemporary. The exhibition takes a look at its thirteen years of creation.
