From day one, Frank & Eileen founder and CEO Audrey McLoghlin believed that she had the opportunity to build her business as a force for good. Now, over a decade later, her vision has helped Frank & Eileen grow into a globally-recognized fashion brand that’s challenging a traditionally male-dominated industry. But success is only part of the story. What makes McLoghlin’s story unique is how she succeeded, with a business she defines as, “Woman-owned, women-led and mother-approved.”
Speaking from her Los Angeles home near Frank & Eileen’s headquarters, McLoghlin is quick to point out that female leadership is a rarity in fashion. Rather than a glass ceiling, McLoghlin refers to this imbalance as the “glass runway.” That’s why she’s been passionate about creating a work environment where women, and mothers in particular, don’t feel like they’re forced to choose between their commitments at home and their commitment to advancing their careers.
