Anita Dongre

"Our world is not ours alone. Humanity can only survive and thrive by coexisting harmoniously with all living beings that share the planet with us. I am honoured to support the initiative and be a matriarch."

Anita Dongre always knew she wanted to found and run her own fashion house. Born and raised in Bombay, she spent her summers with family in Jaipur, which influenced her aesthetic and understanding of craft and artisanship. After she earned her degree in fashion design, Anita founded House of Anita Dongre in 1995 with two sewing machines, and the support of her family. A vegan who is deeply committed to sustainability, animal welfare and women empowerment, Anita gives her time and energy to promoting awareness about the issues she believes in.
