Gg bébé Shoes and Changing Bags are designed and handmade by me, Rebecca Gutsell in Los Angeles, USA.
What started out as a hobby making women's shoes back in 2004 all changed when baby Gabriel Gutsell aka "Gabe the Babe", the original Gg bébé, came along in 2012.
When we struggled to find a pair of soft yet protective shoes to accommodate Gg bébé's adventurous activities whilst learning to walk, my husband encouraged me make him a pair myself. Using what I had learnt during many courses at the London College of Fashion and Prescott & Mackay I created his first pair of shoes.
The "Gabe the Babe" high top was born, leading the way for seasonal variations. The designs have been road tested by Gabe himself so he can vouch for the comfort and durability!
The Gg bébé Changing Bag is a chic yet practical accessory for Yummy Mummies on the go. It looks like a clutch, but has room inside for the essential wipes, diapers and a change of clothes and folds out to reveal a wipe-clean changing mat. So only you need to know where you're heading! The Gg bébé Changing Bag was conceived from not wanting to lug around my bulky changing bag - I wanted something stylish and compact for those diaper changing emergencies. I still use it now, although Gabe is potty trained, to carry wipes and a spare set of clothes.
There are plenty more ideas where they came from but for now I hope you like the shoes and bags as much as I do.
