Diego Fuchs, one half of the design duo behind HELDER DIEGO, graduated from the International Academy of Design in 2005. After several years working alongside Toronto based designer Nada Shepherd of NADA, Diego, along with Helder Aguiar, decided to start the contemporary women’s brand HELDER DIEGO.
In 2010, HELDER DIEGO was launched with much acclaim. The brand focuses on building wardrobe foundations that can be enhanced from season to season with its Sleek, Sexy and Sophisticated signature aesthetic. After being finalists in both TFI New Labels as well as Mercedes Benz Start-Up competitions, the duo went on to become staples at Toronto Fashion Week working with the esteemed production company THE COLLECTIONS.
