Women with Purpose

Women with Purpose

"Akris has always been about women. Women who create, lead, inspire and dare. Women who wear confidence, make their own decisions and distilling their look into an effortless appearance that speaks in a whisper, yet still commands a room.

Women with Purpose is a league founded in the spirit of celebrating women across the globe that dedicate their time, work and energy towards improving the lives of individuals, communities and industries and make a change for a better.

Women with Purpose is part of the foundation that Akris, as a house of fashion, was built on. Founded by an independent woman in 1922, Akris began with Alice Kriemler-Schoch’s fondness for textiles and entrepreneurial vision. The family business of Akris continues to honor Women with Purpose who champion ambition, aspiration and advancement. Women leaders with a daring vision for change, who are working actively to create equality, inclusivity and diversity."
