International Women’s Day 2022

This International Women's Day, we celebrate with you and Akris Women with Purpose, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Amri Kibbler, Brita Fernandez Schmidt, Hannah Strafford-Taylor, Kaori Nakano, Marie de France, Monette Chaya, and Stacey D. Stewart, who dedicate their time, work, and energy towards improving the lives of individuals, communities, and industries and make change for the better.   

The Women with Purpose initiative is part of the foundation that Akris, as a fashion house, was built on. Founded by a 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, advancement. Female leaders with a daring vision for change, who are working actively to create equality, inclusivity, and diversity.
