Love Is In The Air At Anne Valerie Hash

Spring is all about romance, and for designer Anne Valerie Hash – whose inspiration was ‘love in all its forms,” she said before the show – that means a desert escape dressed in powdery blouses, featherweight leathers and easy pants that thankfully take the harem
concept up several notches. The Anne Valerie Hash woman could well be a chimera who could vanish in a ripple of frayed chiffon, a wink of metallic tulle (a deft handling of another AVH signature, the tutu) and a slither of a black dress were she not anchored by a pair of eminently covetable jeweled wedges.

Beauty note: M.A.C makeup artist Alex Box used shimmery liquid eyeliner
sans mascara to keep the look light, fleeting and more contemporary
