Rachel Roy and daughter Ava pose in front of the Taj Mahal in India on October 13, 2012. Rachel writes via twitter, “Ava & I at the entrance to the Taj Mahal today, so blessed to be taking this trip with her!”


Roy recently told The Hindu that she was excited to take Ava to India so that her daughter could “see part of what makes her beautiful… the country she’s from.” Rachel also commented on her work ethic which focuses on empowering women. “I feel that it is my duty — not even a choice — to provide jobs. And I prefer to provide those jobs to women. Particularly for women that might be at a disadvantage, not being able to work. Once you work you have freedom, you can pay your own bills, get out of the situation you are in, protect yourself,” said Roy.

Rachel has worked in the fashion industry over two decades, serving as stylist for Michelle Obama and Tyra Banks during that time. Rachel, who is of Indian descent, has two children with estranged husband Damon Dash.
