August 1st is National Girlfriends Day (and the start of our National Girlfriend Awards), so we’re all about celebrating best girlfriends! Sometimes your closest friends can be your business partners, and here are some companies to prove it. Whether it’s fashion or just having fun, these girlfriends are doing what they truly love—together!
Tuccia Di Capri: Tuccia Di Capri, run by Terri Coleman and Tove Nord, combines custom-made sandals with haute couture. Nord ran into a “hole in the wall” custom shoe shop in Capri as an 18-year-old runway model and has since then brought the ancient art to present-day South Beach, FL. Now featured in high-end retailers such as Henri Bendel, the sandals are handmade by professional cobblers who work to create a “made-to-measure fit” that is both stylish and durable.
