Brenda Trenowden, recent CBE awardee and Global Chair at 30% Club (an international club that campaigns for more women in leadership), is so passionate about putting women in the front seat that even her look pushes for gender equality, right down to her signature, custom-made tortoiseshell frames.

Designed by EB Meyrowitz — a bespoke eyewear company in London owned by women — the frames are a key element of Trenowden’s signature style.

“Several years ago, I wanted a pair of glasses that were different and interesting,” she told ETPanache.

“They [EB Meyrowitz] chose these frames for me, and I said, ‘No way. I’ll look like Harry Potter’. But they insisted and now everybody knows me because of my glasses. I get stopped on the street, in restaurants, in airplanes and even on the Tube. So, I was really pleased I took their advice.”
