As shared over lunch, what actually sparked the creation of Butterfly Twists is that one of the four men behind the brand, who still succeeds in staying nameless at this point, had to attend a party wearing 6-inch stilettos after losing a bet. What an excellent entrepreneurial turn-out! Aside from ballet shoes, and sandals, they also have peep-toes, slippers, brogues, ballet pumps, and rain boots or "wellies" for women. The brand was launched in London in 2009 by Emmanuel Eribo, Frank Eribo, Mark Quaradeghini and Philippe Homsy. So, yes, it's either one of them who had to work those heels that unforgettable day.
Below are some more photos from the fun lunch filled with great conversations, exchanges of laughter, fantastic food, and the latest from Butterfly Twists!
