About us

The Brand

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.

Retaining a consistent and unique signature, X NIHILO evokes the idea of strength, beauty and independence through exquisite material and astounding craftsmanship. Embracing the slow fashion movement, X NIHILO‘S concept of luxury is embedded in its meticulously curated material, well considered design, and the highest level of dedication and attention to detail in construction.

Our Founder

Entrepreneur Jenny Hsieh is the Founder, CEO, Creative Director and Designer of X NIHILO. She made her fashion debut by winning the QDOS award presented by the Design Institute of Australia while she was studying a Bachelor of Fashion at QUT University. Jenny then went on to earn a Masters Degree in Fashion Merchandising with high distinction from RMIT University. For a number of years before launching X NIHILO, Jenny broadened her credentials with a dynamic fashion career from couture, ready to wear and leisure to accessories and footwear. As the CEO of the brand, Jenny brings with her a significant professional network as well as creative expertise and insight into the fashion industry.
