Anne Valérie Hash “Décrayonner”
Creating an intimate atmosphere as if stepping into the private studio and creative process of a fashion designer, the Museum of Lace and Fashion, La Cité Internationale de la Dentelle et de la Mode, presents the retrospective “Anne Valérie Hash. Décrayonner” until November 13, 2016.
As a famous name and major referent of the fashion world, the French designer is particularly known for deconstructing menswear pieces to transform them into womenswear creations, and, more generally, for bringing harmony to contrasts and contradictions, whether in terms of colours, styles, fabrics or eras. Her knowledge and passion for lace is a highlight, with a whole host of pieces made using this luxurious material.
The exhibition puts around 100 items on display, including garments, videos and exclusive documents. Pieces are on loan from the Palais Galliera fashion museum in Paris, and from the private archives of Anne Valérie Hash’s fashion house.
