Anne Gelbard, a creative alchemy

As a textile finisher, set in the center of Paris, Anne Gelbard is constantly striving for that special alchemy to transform a fabric or enhance a garment. Painting, bleaching, oxidizing and coating are performed using a variety of techniques: flat-screen printing, hand-painting, airbrushing, printing with real gold or copper leaf, and more.
Voluptuous light and colour, plays on patinas and reflections, Anne Gelbard is constantly in motion, looking for something new, something surprising, always curious to learn and eager to develop new techniques. Twenty years of fashion, of passion, including 16 years in the workshop, years of innovation and research that – in close collaboration with designers and in daily contact with their needs and their creativity – truly enable her techniques to take flight.
From February 18-20, 2014, Anne Gelbard participates in Maison d’Exceptions, the space at Première Vision dedicated to haute création.
