Bernhard Willhelm (b. 1972, Ulm, Germany) and Jutta Kraus (b. 1972) studied fashion at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and the University of Westminster in London, respectively, before launching the Bernhard Willhelm label in 1999. Since their first presentation of women’s wear in Paris, they have brought a highly personal, idiosyncratic style to the arena of fashion, with work typified by craftsmanship, eclecticism, and irony, and seasonal collections presented in the forms of installation and tableaux vivant.

Willhelm’s career has been marked by collaboration with artists such as Björk, Olaf Breuning, and Carsten Fock, and awards including the Moët & Chandon Fashion Prize (2001) and ANDAM from the French Minister of Culture (2005). His work has been presented at the Athens Biennale; the Ursula Blickle Foundation, Stuttgart; and in retrospectives at ModeMuseum, Antwerp (2007-08); Groninger Museum, Netherlands (2009-10) and Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (2015). Wilhelm was also professor and head of the fashion department at the Royal Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna between 2009 and 2014.
