There's no doubt that Brec Bassinger has a killer sense of style, so it's a totally natural fit she would one day turn her fashion sense into her own one-of-a-kind designs. Well now, the actress has just announced that she is partnering with women's fashion footwear company, GuiltySoles, to create an exclusive shoe design. The best part is, in addition to us being able to shop her custom style, a portion of sales will be donated to JDRF, an organization formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
"I am so excited to be collaborating with GuiltySoles. As a National Ambassador of JDRF and with fashion being one of my passions, I was quick to jump on this opportunity," Brec shared in a press release. "I have had type 1 diabetes for 9 years, and have been attending JDRF walks since I was first diagnosed. JDRF has not only improved the lives of people with diabetes, but has allowed us to have a supportive community."
Brec gave fans a sneak peek at her shoe designs, sharing a photo of her sketching process on Instagram.
"Anyone who knows me knows I'm OBSESSED with shoes," Brec shared. "Naturally, it has been a blast getting to design a pair with GuiltySoles."
The "BREC" shoe will soon be available in two colors: red and royal blue, and will be exclusively shoppable through GuiltySoles.com just in time for summer.
"I knew I wanted them to be strappy and colorful," Brec shared. "I wanted to make sure I chose colors that I felt represented JDRF and the type 1 community. True blue was easy; that is the color for JDRF. I chose red as well to represent how people with T1D check their blood sugar every single day. As of now there is no cure, but thanks to JDRF and all their progress, I'm confident the cure is on the way. I'm thankful for everyone's support and I hope everyone enjoys the shoes as much as I do."
We can't wait to see more!
