Get to Know: Margaux
This Saturday, February 18, 11AM-6PM, Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson of Margaux join us for a sole-full trunk show. The pair of Harvard classmates turned a shared footwear frustration into a direct-to-consumer footwear brand, aimed to take the pain points out of both the shopping and wearing process by offering handcrafted standard and custom-fit flats in 15 colors. We caught up with the duo to chat about their brand and some of their favorite New York City finds.
Describe your brand in one sentence.
Alexa & Sarah: Margaux is a digitally native brand for the modern woman, offering thoughtfully-designed expertly-fitted footwear.
What’s one fact about you that we can’t learn by googling?
Alexa: I learned to speak Swahili when I was nineteen.
Sarah: I’m both a college drop-out and a college graduate – It’s a long story…
Alexa: Barbuto – for their gnocchi and world famous chicken.
Alexa: Django Jazz Club at The Roxy – I recently discovered and have been back twice since!
What album or song would you consider your personal soundtrack?
Alexa: Stand Back by Stevie Nicks.
Sarah: Perhaps it’s cliché, but I can’t stop listening to Lin Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton – It’s brilliant.
