Silk Italia brings you the latest in fashion, direct from Italy.

Its founders, Justyn & Susha Shaw (mother and son) travel extensively throughout Italy to supply Australian and New Zealand women the latest in quality European fashion.


Justyn Shaw is an artist, publisher, producer and importer. He lived for several years in Italy. Over the last 4 years, he has forged business relationships with many fashion designers and garment makers in Lazio and Toscana. He currently is based in New Zealand.

Madame Susha is a fashion designer, photographer and importer, who also has moved to New Zealand. Susha has been involved in fashion for over 40 years. She is revered in Brisbane’s alternate clothing industry having owned the legendary ‘Totally Twisted Clothing Company’ on Elizabeth Street in the C.B.D. for several years.

Silk Italia currently has a store in Akaroa, New Zealand and has just expended with a new store opening in Christchurch, also in New Zealand.

‘Our garments are loved for their femininity, the quality of the fabrics and their Italian style and flavour.’

So, if you’ve been wondering, how can you get quality European fashion without flying all the way to Europe?…..
