new to the design team!

Fresh to the design team last week Catherine is ready to spread her enthusiasm through the department. As a technical designer Catherine will be ensuring the construction, fit, and quality of our products. Catherine is a master of ‘the perfect fit' and will be helping lululemon to continue to produce best in the world Groove Pants and apparel! Keep reading to find out what makes her tick.

what is something unique or surprising about you?

I'm a happy person. My positive energy is contagious. If you have a chance to meet me, you will understand why.

what is one of your biggest passions?

Yummy food. Come on, who doesn't like to eat?

where is your favorite place in the world?

I love to travel, but the place I call home, Vancouver, is my favourite place in the world.

catherine loves vancouver

what do you want to be remembered for?

I would like to be remembered as a lovely wife, a caring daughter, a trusted friend, a reliable colleague, a good person. However, when I left my last job, many of co-workers said that they will really miss my distinctive, genuine, happy laugh.

what gets you up in the morning?

Not coffee. The idea that I'm one day closer to achieving my goal helps me to jump out of my cozy bed. Also, I can't wait to experience the unexpected day to come. As we all know "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get" - right?

coolest thing about being a technical designer?

As a technical designer I'm fortunate to see the progression of our product from the initial design on paper to the end of ready-to-buy garment. Each product to me is like a baby - I nurture and shape them- I take care of them until they are ready to fulfill their purpose in this world - how cool is that?

We are incredibly excited to have Catherine on the team contributing to the creation and production of our technical clothing for yoga, dancing, running, and most other sweaty pursuits! Check out some of the amazing possibilities available for your own future contributions at lululemon athletica.

Will Catherine also be giving her attention to the fit of the mens products? Specifically the pants and shorts?

Hey Selina,
our current size range is 2-14. We previously had a few items in our dance line in size 0, but not any longer.

Hey Clayton,
Yes she will! Catherine will be responsible for the technical side of design, which includes things like fit and drafting patterns for product.

Hi there,
I’m a Canadian business student and I have a couple of questions regarding the route you took to end up with a career at Lululemon. I was wondering if you’d be interested in answering a few of them. Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.
