About the Event
In 2009, former Georgia Tech Engineer Audrey McLoghlin founded luxury clothing brand Frank & Eileen. Borrowing her grandparents’ names, Audrey sourced traditional menswear shirting fabrics from the finest family-owned mill in Italy to reinvent the button-up for women—a category that had previously focused solely on men. Frank & Eileen quickly became a favorite with cultural icons such as Meghan Markle, Oprah Winfrey, and Angelina Jolie and is now a global omnichannel retail brand. In 2020, Frank & Eileen achieved B Corp certification, with an industry-leading impact score of 97.5 (making it the second-highest ranking globally recognized U.S. fashion brand to complete the rigorous certification process, trailing only Patagonia). She is a four-time entrepreneur who has bootstrapped through good times and bad and continues to own 100% of her companies.
