About the talent behind the label...
Colette Guanta comes from three generations of dressmakers and manufacturers. Colette studied design at East Sydney before working with her mother, Silva Guanta, who to this date manufacturers beautiful garments for women who appreciate great quality fabrics and design. Colette then moved on to open Tessuti Fabrics at Chatswood on Mother's Day in 1992, where she sourced top quality designer fabrics, trims and buttons.
