Our Story

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

It has been our realization at Silk Italia, that the Australian and New Zealand retail clothing industry and their customers are limited by Asian supplies at the cost of quality and style.

How can you get quality without flying all the way to Europe?

..... Well.... Let us start by bringing Italy to you. Silk Italia is an Australian/New Zealand owned company and was founded in 2011 by Justyn Shaw and Madame Susha.

Justyn Shaw is a fashion and antique jewelery exporter formerly based in Rome, Italy. He has been involved in fashion since 1991 having had stores and a number of his own clothing labels over 20 years in the industry.


Madame Susha is a fashion designer, photographer and importer formerly based in Brisbane, Australia. 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.

We specialize in silk or linen fashion garments and have limited stock arriving weekly. Be warned..... these items sell out quickly!
