A disheveled and star-struck me with Ann Valerie Hash.  I had the opportunity to tour her amazing Maison, an old theater and ballroom.  I was too afraid to take pics so check it out here .  Goddd do I admire her as a designer.  She makes me feel so less important dammit!  I'm from from LA and I own 2 small brands.  Ann has an official label of haute couture in Paris.  I bow down!  I felt like my work was peanuts compared to what her and her team create in her fashion house.  The quality and detail that go into her garments are simply inspiring.  I hear the word "couture" all the time (especially being in America where it is blatantly slapped on anything garment related...ahem..juicy) but it really means something much greater when in the presence of it.

and now you can have a taste of my poor photography.  I decided to take most pics in 35mm...Well, I've learned that I'm horrible and ruined most of them by not properly winding the film or double exposing them...but here are some viewable ones!!

  36. LOVE the photographs, makes a nice change from the superglossy pictures we usually see on blogs from various fashion weeks. Also, i adore that gritty textuality of film prints.
