Gurjot Sidhu, AB '90, MBA '93

CEO and Creative Director, Gurjot New York

A Chicago native and long-time New York resident, Sidhu founded Gurjot New York out of her passion to see women professionals excel in the workplace. Recognizing the lack of high quality, relevant business wear available in the market, Sidhu combined her experience and interests to design a line of luxury business wear that conveys power, style, and success.

Fashion has always been of strong interest to Sidhu. She started sewing pieces to convey her own style at age 7 and became a dedicated Vogue follower at age 13. After receiving her AB from University of Chicago and MBA from Chicago Booth, Sidhu had a successful career in management consulting for the banking, technology, and retail industries, ultimately running her own boutique e-commerce strategy consulting firm in New York City. Sidhu attended New York's Fashion Institute of Technology to learn the fashion business and soon thereafter launched Gurjot New York.
