By following her gut and killer business instincts, Anita Dongre has erected one of the biggest Indian fashion houses in India. But now the designer is also making her mark around the world.
The designer has opened her flagship store in New York - House of Anita Dongre and is showing no signs of slowing down. The company is projected to cross a revenue of 20 million USD (i.e.$130 million INR). This will very quickly make her not only one of the biggest Indian designers but the biggest global designer.
“Anita Dongre was the only designer to understand the need for designer pret [or ready-to-wear] and diffusion wear in India, and really is a case study for other Indian designers,” says Indian designer Rahul Mishra.
The biggest news in March has been the quick spread of Coronavirus across the globe. The pandemic has made its presence felt across multiple industries and fashion is no exception.
