SEATTLE, Oct. 10, 2023—Moss Adams, one of the largest accounting, consulting and wealth management firms in the nation, announced Los Angeles-based apparel company, Frank & Eileen, as the winner of the 2023 Moss Adams Fashion Innovator (MAFI) Award.
Founded by former engineer Audrey McLoghlin in 2009, Frank & Eileen is a woman-owned and women-led certified B Corp company famous for its Italian-milled button-up shirts. The company sustainably sources and manufactures clothing for women from Italian fabric that’s traceable to the field of its origin and meets the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 global certification for the absence of harmful chemicals.
“I am thrilled and honored that Frank & Eileen is the 2023 Moss Adams Fashion Innovator Award winner,” said Audrey McLoghlin, CEO and founder of Frank & Eileen. “Using our ability to be innovative as a force for good has long been core to everything we do at Frank & Eileen. Our intentional approach to innovation has not only scaled our sustainable-from-the-start business and built an incredibly loyal customer base, but it’s also led to us receiving the highest impact score for any woman-owned, globally recognized apparel brand in the US. This award celebrates our commitment to slow fashion, made sustainably. And we're just getting started."
Frank & Eileen joins an exclusive list of designers as winners of the MAFI Award. The MAFI Award is presented annually to a California-based apparel company that exemplifies creativity and innovation, from design to marketing and commerce, as well as sustainability and diversity, in the past twelve months.
“Frank & Eileen is certainly deserving of this year’s Moss Adams Fashion Innovator Award, based on the innovation and growth achieved by the company over the last year,” said Marco Valverde, Partner and Apparel National Practice Leader. “The company exemplifies our two newest criteria—sustainability and diversity—by being woman-owned, having an all-woman-led executive team, and attaining B Corp certification.”
