Most times exclusive designer garb is worth every penny you pay for them like the 100$ yoga pants from Lululemon. To a fashion conscious health nut, Lululemon definitely hits that sweet spot. Their active wear is bright and colorful, comfortable and of course very hip. Unfortunately higher the price consumers pay for the brand, greater are the expectations of quality, and thus more spectacular is the fall from grace for companies that mess up! like Lululemon most recently did with putting out see-through yoga pants. Or Apple for that matter with its maps app or the latest Ford Figo ad fiasco making the rounds in the media. While the latest scandal may not send Lululemon fans running for the hills, it has surely made a dent to the image of one of the most hip and happening companies around.
