What makes the dynamic duo behind size inclusive shoe company Margaux so remarkable? Practically everything. Co-founders Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson are brilliant, articulate, passionate, thoughtful, laser-focused on their customers, and still a few years away from their 30th birthdays. Their creation is disrupting the way we think about women’s shoes, and changing expectations about what we can expect from brands. They are doing all of that with an intense focus on quality, but at a price point that makes their product broadly accessible.
A chance encounter at a cab stand their freshman year in college brought Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson together. From that point their friendship and later their business partnership was launched.
My conversation with Alexa and Sarah covers not only their innovative business, but what it means to be a young, female entrepreneur who is unapologetically disrupting the retail shoe market.
We also talk about where the initial idea for Margaux came from, and why brand values and commitment to customer are sacred to them. We also talk: confidence – where it comes from and how to sustain it, recovering from setback, the value of a strong partnership, and perseverance.
