The shoemaker, Rayne Edward

An English shoemaker who at a very young age he joined the family business, the H&M Rayne company, founded by his grandparents in 1889, which specialised in the production of shoes for the stage and, with the opening in the 1920s of a fine shop in Bond Street in London, also in non-theatrical footwear. In 1951, after the death of his father, Edward Rayne took over the business. For some time he formed an alliance with Delman, Herman B. of New York, but in 1961 he sold the company to Debenhams Ltd, one of the largest British commercial groups. The Rayne’s, with their varied but always sophisticated style, are famous all over the world and have also accompanied Dior’s collections on the catwalk.
