From an early age, Sybille always had a love for art and creative expression from her head down to her SHOES! After being diagnosed with Crohn's disease at the age of fourteen, she took to sketching clothing and shoe designs during long term hospital stays and days home sick from school. These ideas helped her imagine all the designs she wished she could wear outside of a hospital gown. With a dream of one day having a shoe line of her own, Sybille Guichard branded her French name into a label; SybG by Sybille Guichard.
"Because of my disease, there are times I lose so much weight my clothes no longer fit and I feel down on myself. Fortunately, my shoe size stays the same. What I wear on my feet always brings me a certain level of confidence, I almost forget that I don't feel well."
Taking a debilitating illness and giving it a more positive image by bridging the gap between art and awareness, SybG by Sybille Guichard donates to the C.A.R.E. for Crohn’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Sybille Guichard, with every shoe purchased. With a statement emblem placed under each shoe, the purple ribbon brings awareness to Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, and the SybG logo solidifies authenticity and the collaboration between the pair. SybG by Sybille Guichard is a brand paradox that screams simple but EXTRA, trendy yet sophisticated, affordable luxury.
