At Rachel Simpson we’re passionate about shoes- it’s what we do
At Rachel Simpson we’re passionate about shoes- it’s what we do. From design through to production we take the utmost care to bring you a beautifully unique collection. Our shoes are comfortable because they are designed to be worn, and made properly in a traditional shoe factory by real people.
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 name 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.
Now stocked in independent retailers worldwide, the brand continues to lead the way in originally designed, unique wedding shoes. The company is based just outside Birmingham city centre, where it also has a dedicated showroom containing the entire Rachel Simpson collection.
