Kate Sheridan was born in 1975 in Cambridge. She grew up in the Essex countryside where her passion for nature blossomed that still inspires her work.
In 2001 with friend Helen Minns, a graduate in textile design from St Martins, she launched the label ‘Sheridan + Minns’ at London's Fashion Week to rave reviews. 'Sheridan + Minns' went on to retail in cutting-edge boutiques in England, all over Europe and in the Far East and got highly favorable coverage in fashion and lifestyle publications worldwide.
Spring/Summer 2004 saw 'Sheridan + Minns' streamlined into ‘Kate Sheridan’ with extremely positive results. Since that debut, 'Kate Sheridan' the label has matured and developed into Kate's signature brand of offbeat, poppy, unique bags and accessories. Her twice-yearly collections continue to gain interest from fashion press and buyers alike.
Kate was approached by England's best-loved and brightest fashion retailer Topshop to create her own diffusion line named ‘ what kate did next….’which again raised her profile and was a successful venture.
The 'Kate Sheridan' brand continues to go from strength to strength in terms of sales galvanizing its identity and is now available from stockists the world over. The product range has expanded to offer leather jewellery, which is all handmade in the London studio, waxed cotton Outerwear and a growing range of Italian leather UK manufactured high-end purses and bags.
