Vivienne Westwood has designed a new range of uniforms for Virgin Atlantic
Dame Vivienne Westwood has designed a collection of new uniforms for Virgin Atlantic, unveiled at a party in Shoreditch last night.
Blondie performed to guests including Naomie Harris, Daisy Lowe and Jamie Campbell-Bower (plus Sir Richard, of course) to celebrate the Brit mega-brands teaming up. (Click through the gallery above to see all of the guests)
7,500 staff including pilots, cabin crew and holiday reps will wear the 22 piece uniform, the re-launch of which coincides with the airline’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
As usual, the environment was our favourite flame-haired fashion dame’s top priority and so she selected a sustainable polyester fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, topped off with a nano finish to extend the durability and enhance the colour-fastness of the pieces.
Inspired by iconic hostess ensembles, 40s couture cuts and Virgin’s signature ‘red hot’ concept, the range includes a double breasted ‘drape coat’ for women, while men have a three piece suit inspired by classic Saville Row tailoring techniques.
Passengers will be able to see the uniform in flight from 1st September this year.
