Rachel Simpson is passionate about shoes. From design through to production they take the utmost care to bring you a beautifully unique collection. Their shoes are comfortable because they are designed to be worn, and made properly in a traditional shoe factory.
After graduating with a degree in Footwear Design from Leicester’s De Montfort University in 2002, Rachel spent several years designing for a number of high street brands, before launching her own label in 2008. She combines this commercial understanding of trends with her love of traditional shoe making and all things vintage, to create unique designs with an unmistakable style.
The idea all started in a workshop at the bottom of the garden, where Rachel first began creating bespoke handmade wedding shoes, whilst also designing for the high street. Demand soon grew, and production moved to a factory in Spain, maintaining the shoes’ bespoke look without the bespoke price tag to match! Now worn by brides all over the world, the original ethos remains central to the brand, to produce shoes which are unique, elegant and beautifully made.
We love the Rachel Simpson look and the fact she is a graduate of Leicester’s De Montfort University, but the main reason we chose to showcase her collection in our boutique is they are leather soled, leather lined and seriously comfortable: a must for any bride to be on her big day!!
