7 for All Mankind

Seven for All Mankind started in the fall of 2000 in Vernon, California. The founders of the business noticed a void in the contemporary denim market. Fashion denim had not been seen in the US for over 20 years. The brand enjoyed success instantly at retail. The product has been successful because of the fit, finishes, fabrics, and attention to detail. Seven for All Mankind is now sold in over 35 countries with distributors in Western Europe, Canada, and Japan.

The design team includes designers Rebecca Danemberg, Tim Kaeding and Larissa Noble. The three of them have worked extensively in denim design and bring a vast understanding of fabrics, style and customer desire to 7 for all mankind.

As head designer for The Gap Women’s Denim for a tenure of four years, Tim designed the women's line and the 1969 premium label. He successfully contemporized the basic image using some of the best denims and laundries in the world. Before that, Tim designed exclusively for his private label, Timothy Kaeding, a high-end sportswear line based out of New York.

Rebecca joined 7 for all Mankind in September 2001, after heading design of Tahari's denim line. Prior to that, Rebecca designed and manufactured her private line in New York, selling out of her downtown store. Her designs were carried at Barney's, Linda Dresner, Saks Fifth Avenue and Fred Segal, among others.

Larissa Noble graduated from Parsons School of Design. She joined the design team at Ellen Tracy focusing on tailored jackets, outerwear, evening wear, and accessories. Larissa worked as a costume designer in Los Angeles before joining 7 for All Mankind.
