Zampatti was married twice: she married Leo Schuman, her first husband, in 1964. They divorced in 1970. Her second husband was politician John Spender from 1975 until they separated in 2008 and divorced in 2010. She had three children: Alex Schuman (chief executive officer of Carla Zampatti Pty Ltd), Allegra Spender, and Bianca Spender (designer). On 26 March 2021, Zampatti attended the opening night of La traviata at Mrs Macquarie’s Point on Sydney Harbour, where she was knocked unconscious after falling on a staircase. She was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital where she died from her injuries on 3 April, at the age of 78. Zampatti’s family accepted the offer of a state funeral from the New South Wales government. Zampatti was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 1987 Australia Day honours for service to the fashion industry as a designer and manufacturer. She was elevated as a Companion of the Order in the 2009 Queen’s Birthday Honours List. In 2001 Zampatti was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian society in business leadership. Zampatti was a Bulletin/Qantas Businesswoman of the Year, and in 1994 the fashion industry of Australia named her Designer of the Year. In January 2005, Zampatti was honoured by Australia Post and named on an commemorative Australian postage stamp, along with other Australian fashion designers, Prue Acton, Jenny Bannister, Collette Dinnigan, Akira Isogawa, and Joe Saba. The award is announced annually in the lead-up to Australia Day, and its recipients are individually featured on a postage stamp. Zampatti later designed the new Australia Post corporate wear, launched in October 2007. In 2004 the Government of Italy appointed her a Commander of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic. The Australian Fashion Laureate Award was given to Zampatti in August 2008. The award is polled by members of the industry, an initiative of the New South Wales Government and IMG Fashion. It recognises outstanding achievement and is the highest honour in the Australian fashion industry. In 1999, Zampatti was admitted as a Doctor of Letters honoris causa by the University of Western Sydney. In December 2018, the University of Wollongong also awarded her an honorary doctorate.
