About Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie
Anna Hu founded her namesake brand, Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie, at the age of 30 and opened her first flagship boutique in New York's Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue, the epicenter of the world's finest brands. She is the only Asian American jewelry designer to work exclusively with French-trained artisans in their New York and Paris workshops. Highly educated in America with degrees from Colombia University, the Gemological Institute of America, Parsons School of Design, and NY's Fashion Institute of Technology, Anna is as much a scholar as she is an artist and her designs reflect that rarity and sophistication. Her work combines eastern and western influences, often inspired by classical music and nature. She has paid homage to fine artists drawing reference from Impressionism and Art Nouveau.
Anna presented her first global exhibition at the Louvre's Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris in July 2012 at the age of 35 and will celebrate the launch of her first book, "Symphony of Jewels, op. 1," published by The Vendome Press and Thames & Hudson this September. It's a limited edition monograph printed in Verona, Italy, featuring 100 pieces from Anna's illustrious body of work.
Anna has been recognized for technical innovation in design and was honored with the China Institute's "Artistic Vision" award in 2011. Her jewelry has been worn by style-influencers the likes of Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore, Hilary Swank, Oprah Winfrey, the acclaimed contemporary artist Cindy Sherman, and Jetsun Pema, the Queen of Bhutan. She and her jewels have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, W, ELLE, The New York Times, InStyle, Robb Report, Vanity Fair, and leading Chinese magazines including Harper's Bazaar, VOGUE, ELLE, L'officiel, InStyle and Marie Claire.
