Happy Birthday to Us!2020-05-15
This year's birthday feels especially monumental—We're turning five! Margaux was launched as an answer to what we needed and knew other women wanted: comfortable, stylish shoes that addressed the alarming lack of size-inclusive options and could keep up with our everyday.
After assembling a team of footwear and brand veterans who knew the industry inside and out—including many who are still part of the Margaux team today—we opened our (virtual) doors with our cornerstone flat, The Classic. The rest, of course, is history.
- Margaux launches with our Classic flat and a Vogue.com exclusive (and Sarah and Alexa spent the morning together, hitting refresh again and again over coffee and muffins).
- We travel around the country, meeting our customers and learning what they want to see from us next.
- The Studio—our first retail concept—opens on 20th Street in Manhattan.
- Press confirmed we were onto a good thing: The Studio was named to New York's Best of New York shopping.
- We flew south for the winter, opening our very first pop-up in Palm Beach.
- The Demi joined the mix (and has been a cult-favorite ever since).
- After months and months of work, we perfected our first heel—fittingly named The Heel—and it's been a gaux-girl favorite ever since.
- We headed to Nantucket for a special summertime pop-up, then went west with a San Francisco outpost.
- We opened our flagship store on Bleecker Street, a jewel-box space that allows shoppers to experience the brand in a way unlike anything before (and made it into The New York Times).
- The product line-up grew too: The Loafer, The Boot, and The Sandal all were added to the mix.
- After countless custom requests from loyal customers for their weddings, we decided to open The Atelier and create custom shoes specifically for the walk down the aisle (and all the surrounding events).
- Julia Engel joined the Margaux family as we debuted a special collaboration with her label, Gal Meets Glam Collection.
- The doors opened to our Washington, DC pop-up, a gorgeous space in the city's historic Georgetown neighborhood.
