In 1995, Hash began a small bridal business. Five years later, she connected with Philippe Elkoubi, now her business partner, and launched a signature collection of handmade and ready-to-wear pieces. 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-feminine aesthetic has cultivated a loyal following globally.
