Carla Zampatti was a legendary Australian fashion designer who launched her eponymous label in 1965. Her mission has long been celebrated for making Australian women feel confident and elegant through her tailoring and exceptional design.

Zampatti passed away recently on the 3rd of April 2021 at the age of 78. Her presence will not be forgotten along with her multicultural success story that will continually inspire businesswomen across Australia. Zampatti designed clothes for women fighting for liberation through the women’s rights movement in the 1960s whilst empowering the women of today in leadership and the workplace.

Zampatti’s lavish Woollahra mansion in Sydney was built in 1928 with a heavy influence of Italian architecture. The interior highlights 16th-century Italian Palladio in style with French and Italian antiques sprinkled throughout.

The secluded four-bedroom home is surrounded by lush gardens and sculptures. Zampatti had a love of Italian architecture which she found minimal, beautiful and solid. Drawn towards hard materials such as stone and art pieces that were big, bold and understated.

Carla Zampatti’s opulent home is refreshing, dreamlike and oozes character from the outside in. Zampatti’s legacy and achievements will continue to shape the women of today and the future.
