Jenny Hsieh made her fashion debut by winning the QDOS award presented by the Design Institute of Australia while studying a Bachelor of Fashion at QUT. She then earned a Masters degree with high distinction from RMIT. For a number of years before launching X NIHILO, Hsieh broadened her credentials by working in the fashion industry. From couture, ready to wear and leisure to accessories and footwear. As the Creative Director of the brand, Hsieh has brought a significant professional network, as well as creative expertise in this dynamic industry.

Established in 2016, X Nihilo is the brainchild of Jenny Hsieh, an entrepreneur with a passion for restrained luxury. X NIHILO – short for ex nihilo – is a Latin phrase that means “creation out of nothing”. The notion identifies X NIHILO’S aesthetics and vision to craft a sophisticated and honest range of leather bags for the modern woman. Targeting women with a strong identity from a generation with the desire to express individuality, X NIHILO consciously distances itself from conspicuous branding. Blending reserved aesthetics with function & timelessness, our bags are inspired by, and designed for women of substance.
