Carla Zampatti, former winner of the Australian Fashion Laureate award, infuses her creative Australian style with Italian influence, creating unique pieces that aren’t easily imitated. With over 27 boutique stores across Australia, Zampatti’s brand is a growing one, and with over 49 years in fashion under her belt, she continues to blaze the way with innovation and charm in her collections.

In the stunning summer collection we witnessed last night, Zampatti showed us wispy flowing feminine gowns that were a little daring and boldly colorful, pieces that contrasted beautifully with the mix-in of modern black tailored separates that were cut and cropped to the max.

Former Runway cover model Paula Abdul, clad in Dolce & Gabbana, was in attendance last night and said she “loved the show,” adding that “there were some real standout pieces.” We agree Ms. Abdul. We adored the entire line.
