Among those who remember Zampatti is the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison.
“We have really lost a great and inspiring Australian. Carla was an icon in the fashion industry, a pioneer as an entrepreneur and a hero for multicultural Australia. It was a great honor to know her. She was a very kind, strong, elegant and honest woman. She will be missed by family, friends and everyone she inspired “, he writes in a statement, according to the newspaper.
