I have a sister and we have always been incredibly close, so I've always been concerned with women's health and wellness. Thus, I felt that I had to engage myself, and Chatelles, into something that matters so I chose the National Breast Cancer Foundation which was founded in 1991 by a breast cancer survivor, and its main aim is to educate women about breast cancer and to provide free mammograms to women in need. Last year during the month of October, we engaged in the Pink October event: For every pair of Edgar Slippers sold, 10% was given to NBCF.

MEET | FRANÇOIS DU CHASTEL
Featured 1.16-1.22.17 | François du Chastel has a foot fetish. But not the creepy kind. The Paris-born former investment banker-turned-footwear designer saw his girlfriends hobbling around on stilettos in pain and thought, why can't flats be fashionable? The answer is, they can, and du Chastel made sure of it with the launch of his company Chatelles in 2012. In just three years and with more than 200 original styles of gentlemen slippers reinvented for women, he truly has made the flat not only acceptable, but covetable. So covetable, in fact, that he's played footsie with some of the most well-heeled women out there (Oh, hey, Kate Middleton). And I don’t know about you, but I’ll take a flat over a heel any day, especially when they’re French fashionista-approved.
Welcome to François’ week.
