About Rachel Simpson
Favoured for their unique style and wearability, Rachel Simpson shoes combine elegant ideas inspired from the 1920s through to the 1950s, with delicate attention to detail, resulting in a truly beautiful signature style.
With carefully selected lasts & heel heights, and full leather linings & soles, the shoes are as comfortable as they are stylish. Every shoe is thoughtfully designed and exclusively made in carefully selected factories using only the highest quality materials. All our shoes are beautifully handmade- the women's collection in Spain, and the men's in India, with Rachel working closely with each factory to achieve the perfect result. The award winning collection is available both online and via stockists nationwide and internationally.
After training in Leicester, Rachel spent several years working as a freelance designer, creating footwear for a number of well know high street brands. In 2008 she returned to her hometown of Birmingham to launch her own name collection which has since gone on to become a well loved brand for it's unique vintage inspired style. It all started with a couple of old sewing machines, when Rachel made her sister's wedding shoes and spotted a gap in the market for brides wanting something truly wearable and that little bit different. Things have come on since then but the core values remain the same- shoes which are beautiful, affordable and wearable.
