Sunday 13 September / 3pm
Don’t miss this final opportunity to learn about the history of Rayne shoes alongside the Museum display. Hear behind-the-scenes insights from Nick Rayne.
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, in 1936, Queen Mary gave the company a royal warrant. Many other members of the Royal Family became customers. Her Majesty The Queen chose to wear Rayne shoes for her wedding to Prince Philip in 1947, and remained loyal to the company for years.
The display features shoes worn and designed by many familiar names including Marlene Dietrich, Ginger Rogers, Hardy Amies, Norman Hartnell and Mary Quant.
