Our Collections

Over the years Fordville has developed a range of clothing brands for men, women and children which are widely sought after throughout the UK and Europe.

Our five brand ranges include nightwear, outerwear, schoolwear and accessories all servicing the need for quality apparel at affordable prices.

Fordville is continuing to build on its excellent reputation as a provider of outerwear with the launch of ProClimate. Working with highly technical fabrics, including Thinsulate, this range is designed for high performance outdoor users as well as the more fashion-led consumer. ProClimate is set to launch across the UK later this year.
