gemibaby is a boutique handmade childrens clothing and accessories label based in Bordertown, South Australia, run by work from home mum, Megan. Since its launch in June 2010, gemibaby has been creating unique and stylish products for the whole family with an ever expanding range of handmade pieces.
Creative Director and Designer, Megan, grew up in Adelaide and has always had a passion for both dance and fashion. Having been involved with calisthenics from an early age; costume design (and sequins!) have been a large part of her life and was integral in her dream to one day become a fashion designer. Although at the time the idea of designing and making childrenswear had never entered her mind!
After moving to Bordertown, Megan had her first child, Diesel, and when he was 6 months old she found it impossible to find hats that were both stylish and affordable that fit him. What started as a simple hat being made from a pair of old camoflague pants, Megan soon found her self making hats for her friends children too, and then for strangers via her gemibaby Facebook page and so began a journey that changed her life.
gemibaby burst onto the Adelaide market scene in late 2010 with a unique range of handmade reversible bucket hats for boys and girls and Megan has continued to visit Adelaide markets regularly to sell her wares. Over the years she has expanded her range of handmade products to include adjustable baby bucket hats, adult reversible bucket hats, clothing for boys and girls and even hair accessories which are lovingly made by her mother to match the clothing ranges.
Most recently, Megan introduced a bespoke range of dresses perfect for weddings/flowergirls and special birthdays called the 'Enchated Garden' Collection which has been a massive hit with weddings being booked upto 18months in advance. An exclusive design is also being stocked at Adelaide based Fashion & Wedding Dress Designer, Liza Emanuele Boutique.
Megan prides herself on being a perfectionist and her attention to detail on each and every piece she makes in her home sewing studio is testament to her commitment to create a brand that is fun, fashionable and inspiring. With dreams to make gemibaby a nationally recognised boutique childrens brand, Megan certainly has her hands full, her expectations high, her goals big and her heart buldging at the seams. Quite simply, gemibaby is a dream come true for her.

All of the creations are crafted with love and care from premium, unique fabrics and will stand the test of time. Mix and match the collections and you’ll never go out of style.
