Hash graduated from the chambre Syndicale dela Couture Parisienne in 1992. Design gigs at Nina Ricci, Chloé, and Chanel followed, and in 1995, Hash began a small bridal business. Five years later, she connected with Phillippe Elkoubi, now her businesspartner, and launched a signature collection of handmade and ready-to-wear pieces, inspired by her whimsical muse: 14-year-old Parisian, Lou Liza Lesage.
In 2001, Anne Valerie Hash presented her first ready-to-wear collection on the Paris couture circuit, where she continues to show. Her quirky, deconstructed looks – a dress crafted out of tailored men’s trousers, in particular – generated considerable buzz. But instead of pushing for megabrand status, Hash has kept her operation relatively small scale. Still, her masculine-feminin a esthetic – that’s gonemore girlies as of late – has cultivated a loyal following globally. Andin spring 2007, Bergdorf Goodman was the first to snyp up Hash’s new handbag line of buttery soft satchels trimmed with temininetrills.
