Carla Zampatti death: All the celebrities who loved her iconic designs

The family of Australian fashion icon and former SBS chair Carla Zampatti has accepted the NSW government's offer of a state funeral, after her death days after a fall at an outdoor opera performance.

This included funding the Carla Zampatti Foundation Design Award at the University of Technology Sydney, a $25,000 scholarship for postgraduate study at an global institution. "Our sympathy and love are with her family".

"Right now I feel so numb, and heartbroken, and sad, so if I cry on national TV please forgive me", she said.

"Carla has always been celebrated for making Australian women feel confident and elegant through her exceptional design, tailoring and understanding of the modern woman", her family said in a statement.

"She really held my hand through a lot of my fashion journey", Franks admitted, adding that she was very intimated when she first met Zampatti in 2006.

"Having migrated herself as a young child, settling in Australia with her family, Ms Zampatti truly believed in SBS and its objective and was committed to promoting greater understanding of and between Australia's diverse communities".

"She was the number one leading Australian success story when it came to fashion". "It was our great honour to have known her".

"I have worn Carla's designs in so many fashion shoots, to a multitude of awards nights - including the International Emmys - and most recently on the series Under The Vines now shooting in New Zealand". Her contribution to our nation will be timeless, just like her designs.

The firms said that of these cases, 850 occurred among participants who got the placebo, while 77 were in the vaccinated group. The study found cellular T cell responses developed in 63% of the older people given two doses of the Pfizer jab.

"Absolutely devastated at the loss of my attractive friend Carla Zampatti this morning", Sam began her lengthy post. "We extend our deepest sympathies to her family". Mary, crown princess of Denmark, also wore Zampatti's clothing.

Zampatti told Fairfax Media at the time that she was "so proud" the Danish royal had not only asked to keep the dress but had chosen to re-wear it for such an auspicious moment.

"She looks so beautifully regal in their 2015 official portraits".

Italian-born Zampatti, who launched her eponymous label in 1965, attended the opening night of the opera La Traviata at Mrs Macquarie's Point on March 26, where she posed on the red carpet.

She was taken to hospital, where she later died.

The publication reports that the designer was "in a coma" and "never woke up".

Her designs were seen on politicians such as Australia's first female prime minister, Julia Gillard and the country's former foreign affairs minister Julie Bishop, as well as actor Cate Blanchett.

Daughter Bianca, who followed in her mother's footsteps as a designer, has posted an emotional tribute to her "inspiration" on Instagram.
