The Carla Zampatti Runway

Carla's ground-breaking contribution to the Australian Fashion industry over her 56-year career was recently recognised at Australian Fashion Week 2021 with a runaway named in her honour.

Named in perpetuity, the Carla Zampatti Runway was launched by the Honourable Julie Bishop on May 31 at Sydney’s Carriageworks. 

Carla loved the magic of a runway show - she knew it pushed her creatively, and that is why she did it. She loved the collaboration - the wonderful musicians, makeup artists, models, hair stylist, staging support, stylists, PR – it was such an orchestration. And she loved how proud her team were to see their work on show.

And just like Carla did every Australian Fashion Week, we too look forward to seeing the inspirational designs the Carla Zampatti Runway will display in the years to come.

Tribute Fashion Show & Luncheon

In July 2021 Brisbane’s Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust staged a luncheon and fashion show showcasing the new spring/summer collection in Carla Zampatti’s honour. The beautiful event recognised Carla’s legacy of championing women and women’s causes, with funds raised on the day going on to support The Forgotten Women, a project which aims to support homeless women over 55.

Captured in these photos are also some of the amazing guests who had chosen to wear their own Carla Zampatti pieces to the event. A spectacular and moving gesture illustrating the impact Carla had on so many.
