Vivien Sheriff

Spearheading a renaissance in bespoke and acutely luxurious designs, the milliner has amassed a suitably impressive roster of high-end clients, including prominent members of the British Royal Family. Undeniably English, Vivien Sheriff’s extraordinary Wiltshire studio is framed by acres of pea-green fields and troops of velvet pheasants, a setting that, in no small way, filters down into the milliner’s classic designs. Over all else, the Vivien Sheriff brand, evokes craftsmanship and expertise. Effortless as these handmade pieces might appear, it takes weeks of unfaltering work to produce each inspiring hat. From Vivien Sheriff’s rural HQ, some of the country’s best milliners translate signature designs into poignant sculptural pieces. Just as a painter will turn to acrylic or oils, this enviably skilled team use ribbons, feathers and lace to realise their daring visions.
