ANNEVALERIEHASH2A few month ago, the Chambre Syndicale of Haute Couture nominated Anne-Valérie Hash as a talented Haute Couture Designer.

What has happened to Anne-Valérie Hash? Or has the Chambre Syndicale of Haute Couture made a pure mistake in rewarding a ready-to-wear designer as Haute Couture designer? We can really wonder how does the Chambre Syndicale of Haute Couture select the candidates and on which criteria it nominates the Haute Couture Designers? For a little while it has been quite a nonsense and Anne-Valérie Hash is a good example.

Anne-Valérie Hash has recently been nominated the designer of the Parisian studio of Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princess Tam Tam. Comptoir des Cotonniers and Princess Tam Tam are very optimistics and we wish them good luck in their choice!!!

Anne-Valérie Hash put her eponymous label on hold in February in order to rethink her business strategy. “I learned the basics of my work on the job and I now may need to consider adopting a different perspective,” said the designer, whose latest Spring/Summer 2014 collection is entitled “Pause”.

“Right now is the time for me to work for brands in need of my expertise,” added the 2003 winner of the Andam prize, expressing her desire to come back with a business model more suited to the new rythm of the fashion calendar. We hope she finds her way but we do hope she does not apply anymore as a Haute Couture designer.
