Popular yoga brand Lululemon was founded n 1998 in Vancouver by Chip Wilson. The first store was opened in 2000 as a community hub for people to discuss alternative forms of fitness including yoga, running and cycling. As the hub grew popular, Wilson decided to release a line of workout clothes and Lululemon was created.
Lululemon went public in 2007 and became an overnight success for their range of women’s workout clothes made from lightweight, stretchy and soft fabrics. Over the years, Lululemon has created a cult of followers by hiring the hottest yoga instructors in town as Lululemon ambassadors to help expand the Lululemon community in new cities.
They opened their first store in Soho and move into their ifc mall early in 2015. The store offers their full range of yogawear and accessories including tank tops, hoodies, pants, shorts, bags, yoga mats and also swimwear.
