A Century of Shoes: 1922
H&M Rayne started as theatrical costumiers and moved into fashion footwear as a consequence of the interest in what the leading actresses of the Edwardian era were wearing, on and off stage.
By 1920 they were well established in society too, as this 1922 advert indicates. The wedding was that or Princess Mary, third child of King George V and Queen Mary, who married Viscount Lascelles in February. She didn't wear Raynes but plenty of the guests did.
