Founder and Creative Director | Kate Ford

Who is Kate?

I am Kate Ford, Founder and Creative Director of the Australian Women’s Ready-To-Wear brand KATE FORD. I am a Sydney based designer, mother and partner. I grew up in the small town of Camden, South West of Sydney where I completed my schooling, then shortly after enrolled in a Bachelor of Design in Fashion Design at Whitehouse Institute of Design in Surry Hills, Sydney.

Since then, I have risen through the ranks of numerous prominent Australian design houses, gaining rigorous training, invaluable experiences and countless passport stamps, all of which have shaped the essence of KATE FORD.

A lot of our KATE FORD designs are inspired by countries, places or a specific moment in my life that holds a special place in my heart. This is reflected through the prints, colours, trims and strong shapes we choose season after season.
