A Short History of Rayne Shoes

WHEN:

Fri November 13th 2015
Free Entry

WHERE:

Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF

WHAT:

Following the popular Rayne Shoes for Stars display at the Museum this summer, author Michael Pick returns to reprise his popular talk on the history of the company.

Rayne opened doors in 1885 as a theatrical shoemaker gracing the feet of London’s leading actors and dancers. The business evolved to become a favourite of Britain’s great and good and, by the 1950s, everyone who was anyone wore Rayne shoes. Many members of the Royal Family became customers and in 1947 Her Majesty The Queen chose to wear Rayne shoes for her wedding to Prince Philip, and remained loyal to the company for years.

Michael Pick is the author of RAYNE Shoes for Stars. His other books include Hardy Amies and Be Dazzled: Norman Hartnell, Sixty Years of Glamour and Fashion.
