British fashion designer and businesswoman Vivienne Westwood joined hands with Virgin Atlantic to design new uniforms for the cabin crew. The carrier and the fashion designer have come together to create new uniforms for the cabin crew, which are made from sustainable materials.
The popular fashion designer has joined hands with entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson to redesign the airline’s signature red suits. However, the parties are known for going against the norm in their own way. The new outfits will reflect Virgin Atlantic’s reputation of having feminine and pristine looking staff.
The tailoring of the uniforms will have a Forties culture associated with them, which will also be glamorous. The women’s suits will be nipped in at the waist and will have double pleats, with a dart on the pencil skirt. The men’s uniform will have a three piece Savile Row Suit with a rich burgundy wool, including British detailing, which is seen in the grey wool lapels and pockets.
Vivienne, said in an official statement, “My clothes have always got a very strong dynamic rapport with the body – they are very body conscious, they help you to look glamorous, more hourglass, more woman. I design things to help people to hopefully express their personality”. The fashion designer added that she was always in search of fabric which is environmental friendly.
