Wendy & Jim designers Helga Schania and Herman Fankhauser have been fashion pioneers for nearly a decade. The two met during their fashion training at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, famous for attracting the cutting edge in mentors like Helmut Lang, Vivienne Westwood and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. After graduation in 1999 Helga and Herman entered in the Festival de la Mode in Hyeres together and they have been putting out collections with a strong alternative identity season after season ever since.

Most recently, however, Helga and Herman embarked on an entirely new hub called the NEW H. Struggling to keep up with high quality delivery, like most labels their age and size, they decided to clean out their complete production system when suddenly, “like a miracle” as Helga puts it, the opportunity presented itself to venture into denim.
