About Sissa Sorella by Katie Dawson



A dynamic addition to the Canberra retail scene, Sissa Sorella opened in Deakin in March, 2018. The store features a carefully curated range of women's shoes and accessories.

The creator of Sissa Sorella, Kate, has always had a passion for shoes. Born and bred in Canberra, after graduating from RMIT University in Melbourne, Kate embarked on a career in logistics with Qantas in Sydney before moving back to Canberra upon the birth of her daughter Ava, in 2007. Upon returning to Canberra, Kate and her husband ran a winery restaurant in Murrumbateman for seven years, before a stint in event management at the National Gallery of Australia.

Opportunity knocked, and presented Kate the perfect space to create a shoe haven in her local shopping precinct. The opportunity was too good to pass up. And from there, the story of Sissa Sorella began. A warm and inviting space, the little pink corner of Deakin. Located behind the buzzing Double Shot cafe in the Deakin Shopping Centre; the Sissa Sorella store itself is a delight and very pink; featuring highly textured walls and luxurious textiles in tones of pink, grey and teal, balanced with a polished concrete floor and natural wood and gold features.
There's a tempting collection of shoes from stylish flats to stunning heels and many locally hand made, one-off accessory pieces. Much thought and planning has gone into ensuring each seasonal collection caters for work, casual and special events. 
Selected styles from the some following brands feature in the collections at Sissa Sorella: Kudeta, Hogl, Hispanitas, Zinda, Sempre Di, LiliMill, EOS, Django & Juliette, Unisa, Department of Finery, Lemon Jelly, among others.
