Dayme - Babee d

Finalist of the Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design

United States

2007 Finalist Dayme Babee d


What is your design philosophy?
Creating fashion trends, not following them. A Babee D. woman is empowered and self-assured, so her handbag should say just that. Babee d. is a collection that is inspired by today's woman and nature at its finest. Incorporating the essence of European architecture, and culture, I continue to introduce handbags that have remarkable style and appeal and bring out the fullness of life as a woman. These elements are fluid throughout the Babee D. collection, illustrated in the intricate detail, leather treatments, and vibrant colors.

What makes your bags unique?
Retail approx. $95- $595

Do you change your silhouettes and materials every season?
The collection will vary. Some styles are introduced into the proceeding season in new treatments or carried of because of their popularity. Most often, new shapes are introduced. As for treatment, I alway search for the best and most unique skins.

What other handbag designers have inspired you?
I am inspired by vintage pieces such as bags, shoes, clothing, furniture. I admire other designers but my inspiration comes more from what I see in day to day life and people.

Which stores currently stock your handbags?
Nordstrom Trend, The New York Look, Never Enough Shoes and More, and many boutiques in the US.
