The concept for IVIYE was developed in November 2019, and was officially launched in Spring 2020.
Lynn Lawson was always a designer, but wasn't a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination (even though she knew how to sew). But with the launch of IVIYE, Lynn realized she actually loved to sew! So she began designing and sewing more styles.
In the Summer of 2021, Lynn entered menopause with what she considered scary and significant symptoms. She developed an anxiety disorder and was agoraphobic for 6 months. Battling her symptoms and health/heart anxiety became her main focus and she decided to close the virtual doors of IVIYE.
In the Fall of 2023, Lynn who was in a state of acceptance, feeling much better, and recovered from agoraphobia, decided to relaunch IVIYE.
During her time away, she developed Menee.co. Menee is the sister brand to IVIYE and focuses on helping women in mid-life feel better through sleep and comfort wear designed by Lynn. Menee also has a styling division for women who want to reclaim their style.
Welcome back to IVIYE!
We've missed being part of the wonderfully-supportive and ever-growing sewing community!
