“Rayne, Shoes for Stars” at the Fashion and Textile Museum
As a tribute to Rayne London’s contribution to the English and European fashion scene, the Fashion and Textile Museum in London organized an exhibition from May to September 2015 featuring some 200 designs spanning a century, including styles worn by members of the Royal Family and Hollywood stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Ginger Rogers.
“Pleasure & Pain” at the V&A
From June 2015 to January 2016 Rayne London was featured among the 200 pairs of shoes illustrating the extremes of footwear from around the globe. Pieces ranged from a sandal decorated in pure gold leaf originating from ancient Egypt to the most elaborate designs by contemporary makers. This exhibition is transferring to The Bowes Museum in Yorkshire this autumn.
There are Rayne shoes in the archives of many museums around the world including Kitty Lords’ embroidered boots, pictured in the “Rayne, Shoes for Stars” book, which can be seen at the Museum of London in the Barbican.
