'As a five-year-old, Italian-born Carla Zampatti visited a group of dressmakers and knew immediately what her life's path would be. She arrived in Australia in 1950 as a nine-year-old with big dreams and a determined attitude. After releasing a small collection in 1965 Carla Zampatti now spearheads one of Australia's most impressive fashion houses and is recognised internationally for her excellent business acumen.
Zampatti is a trustee of the Sydney Theatre Company Foundation Trust and a board member of the Australian Multicultural Foundation as well as the European Australian Business Council.' (Source: http://www.vogue.com.au/fashion/designers) Sighted 10/11/2011
