Sherry’s Millinery Story

Sherry Richardson, a professional milliner, has lived and worked in the Barnsley area for most of her adult life. Involved in the family farm for many years it has often been this that has inspired her work. A talented designer in many areas, her passion for millinery was developed over twenty years ago and continues to this day. Her original designs are exceptional as is her talent for creating the original and unusual in hats and tiaras.

Sherry works with passion and her enthusiasm is infectious. She looks for the unusual and the original. Her work includes the design and production of a bold Egyptian tiara bought by The Tower of London Museum for the Education Department and exhibited at the Clothes Show Birmingham, before going to the London Museum.

Other designs include head pieces based on a harvest theme and these have been sold to outlets in the USA and Australia.

More recently Sherry was invited by professional clothier, Fiona Greene, to design headwear to compliment her new womenswear collection. These were exhibited daily at the Great Yorkshire Show with four Catwalk Shows in the Skipton Building Pavilion. Her work from this Show can be seen in The Gallery on this web site.

Sherry is continuing to take her themes from nature, adapting her ideas to match current fashion trends and looks forward to sharing her life’s professional journey through her new venture into public speaking, with a series of Talks and Workshops.
