Jen and I are terribly saddened by the passing of Carla Zampatti. We have lost a truly great and inspirational Australian.
Carla was an icon to the fashion industry, a pioneer as an entrepreneur and a champion of multicultural Australia. It was our great honour to have known her.
She was a very kind, strong, elegant and sincere woman. She will be sadly missed by family, friends and all who she inspired alike.
Her contribution to our nation will be timeless, just like her designs.
We extend our deepest sympathies to her family.
