Since purchasing Rockhampton Mavericks Western Wear I have wanted to design my own shirt. I was forever chasing a long sleeve shirt that wasn't all checks and stripes. I also wanted to create something versatile that a younger person or a more mature lady could wear. From this idea Kitty Fordè was born.


The name Kitty Fordè was in honour of my husband Ross's Grandmother. A true lady who was respected and loved by all who knew her.





The first Kitty Fordè shirts were launched in December 2012 with 11 shirts to test customer reponse and to iron out any flaws in design and make improvements based on on customer response. 4 years later Kitty Fordè shirts are still going stong.
