New York City, NY, January 19, 2011 – Henri’s Cloud Nine completes a weekend workshop with top pageant designer, Sherri Hill. Last weekend, Sherri Hill and Henri’s Cloud Nine worked with Miss Ohio, Miss Michigan, Miss Nevada, Miss New York, Miss New Jersey and Ohio High School and Collegiate pageant attendees to design custom pageant dresses for the national pageants.

In this workshop, pageant attendees worked one-on-one with Sherri Hill and Henri’s to develop a custom gown for each attendee and unique, trend-setting designs that define the future look of the evening wear competition.  Each attendee personally consulted with Sherri Hill and Henri’s to develop the right gown styling, color combination, fabric selection and beading to highlight their figure and flawless features.


The workshop was followed by a New York-style birthday bash for Fidel Berisha, the official photographer for the Miss USA/Miss Universe pageants and Sherri Hill.


” These pageant gowns will be amazing.” stated Christopher Widdoes, Creative Director for Henri’s Cloud Nine. “The designs are inspired by the unique beauty of each girl, combining her personality, preferences with Sherri Hill’s incredible talent and our 25-year experience designing formal gowns.”


Sherri Hill’s expertise in special occasion dressing has made her one of the top names in the pageant fashion industry. In addition to dressing the top pageant winners like this year’s Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella, she also dresses the stars; Kendall Jenner, Cassidy Gifford, Paula Abdul, Kylie Jenner, Carrie Underwood, Selena Gomez, Shanola Hampton, Tiffany Fallon, Martina McBride, Nicole Polizzi and many more.
