We launch another new and improved website with loads of new offerings like our cute (and crazy soft!) dress line. Our team grows from 5 to 11. Fun celebrity sightings on instagram pop up too like Macklemore, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper.

In 2020 we launch our long awaited toddler pj's, nursing wear for mamas and solid colors in layette. Magnetic Me is picked up by Saks, Bloomingdales and Macy's.   

  
The team also gets to do extensive travel across Asia and Lauren's favorite, trend shopping in Paris!

 

 

 2020

Sadly, COVID-19 starts affecting our factories towards the end of 2019. By the end of February 2020, Lauren, who lives in the neighborhood of NYC's patient zero, goes into quarantine. The rest of the team follows a few weeks later and we start living our new normal. Magnetic Me pivots to helping our brick and mortar small businesses with as many resources as we can to help them pivot the new climate, as well as giving parents as much support as we can from our 2 week quarantine head start. The team continues to work remotely designing Spring 2021 from afar and missing each other, as well as our yearly trade shows where we get to see our industry friends to work on great collaborations and new innovations.
