Helping athletes all over the world achieve their goals... sometimes it all starts with the right outfit.
Who we are
At Catfish Designs we are passionate about designing and creating high quality and sensible priced apparel for atheltes. This ethos started with our founder Prue Casey Spark, a pro surfer on the Women’s Surfing World Tour in the late 1980s. She wanted swimwear that stayed on in the surf and looked good. Frustrated by the uninspiring options, she started making bikinis and one pieces for herself.
Fast forward a few years and by the mid 1990s, as a mum of four very sporty children, her sewing abilities came in handy making sportswear and swimwear for her children. It wasn’t long before friends, surf life saving clubs, swimming clubs and schools were ordering custom apparel.
Head officed in the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Catfish Designs is a thriving online retail business and custom sports apparel service expanding from swimwear to a wide range of sporting apparel. The expansion to activewear, cycling kits, paddle shirts and boardshorts has maintained our core purpose – to make high quality, great looking apparel for athletes at a sensible price.
Catfish Designs has proven to be an industry leader in custom swimwear and sportswear for clubs across the country and a force to be reckoned with in the constantly evolving online marketplace.
What we do
Catfish Designs started by providing high quality, functional and fashionable swimwear to customers online. After expanding to custom made swimwear to clubs, there was an obvious opportunity in the SLSC market for custom club wear.
Catfish has been providing quality custom garments to Surf Life Saving Clubs all over Australia (and recently UK and Canada). We now supply custom sportswear to a huge range of sports clubs, from rowing and paddling to basketball and netball, to rugby clubs and corporate.
We focus on service and understanding the customer’s specific needs for every club, school or company we supply. If we don’t have an option for your sport, contact us your requirements and we’ll work with you to develop something for your need.
