Fabric Store Melbourne

Welcome to d'Italia, a unique shop for those seeking high-quality fabric and lace. d'Italia's service extends to award winning dressmaking & couture wedding dresses.

Fabric Shop


d’Italia sources high-quality, exclusive designer fabrics from Italy, genuine French laces and quality silks and beading from India and China for all types of sewing needs, ranging from very formal and bridal to classy casual.

Labels regularly in store include: Gucci, Armani, Dolce Gabbana, Prada, Escada, Chanel, Balenciaga, Pucci, Max Mara, Valentino, Cerruti, Versace, Cavalli, Missoni, Christian Dior and Jil Sander.


d'Italia boasts a collection of French laces which are visibly the most beautiful, manifest by their gorgeous scalloped edges and subtle, elegant colours. They are soft to the touch due to a high silk/cotton content, which makes them not just more attractive to the eye, but also more comfortable to wear than other inferior laces.

Lace types include: Chantilly lace, Corded lace and Guippure lace, both hand beaded and unbeaded.


d'Italia's services extend to the provision of free in-house styling and design advice, and optional referral to one of our elite team of seamstresses, tailors and couturiers, who are dedicated to d'Italia's customers. Our dedicated makers are available for the custom creation of formal gowns, bridal gowns, mother of the bride dresses, cocktail gowns, racewear and womens' corporate wear. Considering the excellent quality of their work, all are remarkably affordable.
