Co-founder and Director of Public Relations
Meghan Folsom moved to New York in 2001 to attend Barnard College at Columbia University where she graduated with a major in Art History. Raised in Alabama, Meghan stayed in New York city after college and began her career in fashion as a stylist, eventually joining the team at Harper’s Bazaar from 2007-2011. While at Bazaar, Meghan consulted for brands including Chanel, Hugo Boss, YSL, and Reed Krakoff. Meghan left Bazaar to join the fashion team at Vogue in 2011. After gaining invaluable experience on the editorial side of the industry, she was inspired to see the inner-workings of a major brand, and worked at David Yurman under the Chief Marketing Officer. Subsequently, Meghan founded Mega Mega as a way to use her insider experience in fashion and the media to help brands gain exposure.
Co-founder and Director of Sales
Lauren Abend received her degree in English from the University of London where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. While in London she followed her longtime interests in fashion and business to a position as a buyer for a successful independent retail group. Despite growing up in a small town outside of Boston, she set her sights on New York City as her next destination. She moved to the city in 2009 and became the Retail Director for the CFDA award winning brand Rogan. Responsible for third party buying at the brand’s flagship location in NoHo, Lauren developed a discerning eye for undiscovered designers. She brought this passion to her work as a writer for publications including Paper Magazine and Terrific. Lauren founded Mega Mega as a way to bridge the gap she continually witnessed between these emerging talents and the wider marketplace.
