Australian fashion designer Carla Zampatti has died. She was 78.

Zampatti died Saturday morning at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney after she fell while attending an opera opening last week, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The outlet reported that she fell down the last two steps of a staircase the previous Friday at the opening night of La Traviata at Mrs Macquarie's Point, prompting her to lose consciousness.

Zampatti's family confirmed her death on the designer's website.

Born in Italy in 1942, Zampatti moved to Australia with her family in 1950 and then moved to Sydney in her twenties. She launched her first collection in 1965 and established Carla Zampatti Pty Ltd five years later.
