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

Women with Purpose 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.​

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

​ Our #WomenWithPurpose create change and have the drive, and passion to see it through. They are committed to making a difference, to push for progress; they are the future of innovation. Women who simultaneously inspire, challenge and empower you, who act as a mentor to seed, breed and build confidence and therefore pave the way for others.​
