Art or Clothing? The Lululemon way.

The sun seems to shine indefinitely on clothing brand Lululemon, despite being born in Canada’s rainiest city, Vancouver, BC.  It recently gained praise from Oprah Winfrey, seen soaring profits and success through e-commerce.  This success has not gone to the yoga fashionistas heads though and they continue to focus on what their client needs and […]
