Anita Dongre, 57
Founder and chief creative officer, House of Anita Dongre
Previous Rank : 25
Dongre’s name carries considerable heft in the fashion world. While she has 257 outlets and 750 large-format stores across cities in India and abroad, the brand’s presence across online platforms is considered equally strong. In August, Dongre expanded her business to West Asia with a curated launch on Ounass.ae, a Dubai-based portal which houses luxury brands. For FY20, the company recorded a revenue of $100 million.
