meet our designer's moms

In celebration of moms everywhere, we asked some of the lululemon product designers to introduce us to their moms.

I want to thank my mom for being my best friend and never treating me like a kid. She’s always looked at me as an equal and been there for me. I couldn’t ask for anything else. She’s the best mom ever! :D Love you mom!

I want to thank my mom for always believing in me and helping me with all my unfinished sewing projects until all hours of the night. Mom, you are my best friend and I am so lucky to have you. You are always up for anything, whether its a shopping marathon or an afternoon run. Thanks for being you! I love you!

thanks for being strong and gentle at the same time, for doing what you love and inspiring me to do the same, for being truly the best listener i've ever met, and for teaching me what both family and a beautiful relationship look like.

I want to thank my mom for letting me draw, paint and doodle on my bedrooms walls growing up. Most kids get into trouble when they do that, but not with my mom, she encouraged it! Now I just happen to draw all day for work, so thanks mom! I love you.
- Colin: Graphic Designer

I truly treasure every moment we get to spend together. I appreciate all you contribute to my life and all the life experience that you so graciously share with me. I feel so fortunate to have such a successful, resilient, passionate and powerful woman as a role model in my life. Thank you forever and always for all the support and encouragement.
- Lina: Assistant Designer, Run

I loved this! I wish my mum was here to sahre with her. As a mother of teenaged children, I learned from the comments, and hope my kids think that I have inspired them. Being a mother is the best and most rewarding accomplishment of my life.
