Great Things Happen in Twos2017-05-14
Two friends, two years, and a 2.5-inch heel later, we've come to learn that great things happen in twos.
When we first launched Margaux, the goal was simple: To create the perfect pair of ballerina flats that could take you anywhere you wanted to go with confidence and chic. This goal remains paramount at Margaux HQ - We're thoughtfully building a brand pair by pair, style by style, ensuring that each addition is as close to the "perfect pair" as it can be.
Our second year has brought a number of exciting developments for Margaux: From the opening of our first two offline locations (our Manhattan studio and Palm Beach pop-up), to the launch of our two newest silhouettes, The Heel and The Pointe. We've doubled the size of our team, quadrupled the size of our product line-up, and introduced a series highlighting our community of inspirational Gaux Girls - And taken it all in stride as a strong (and perfectly imperfect!) pair.
As we look back on the first two years of this entrepreneurial journey that has brought us to where we are today, we can offer one sound piece of advice: Gaux for it! We've learned time and again that the greatest risks often lead to the greatest rewards. As two twenty-three year olds diving into an industry in which we had no prior experience, we've learned that you don't have to be an expert in what you want to do: You just have to be willing to work hard enough to figure it out.
