This year, Vivienne Westwood's eponymous label is reaching—pardon the pun—new heights: The iconic designer has teamed up with Virgin Atlantic to redesign its red uniform.
According to the Daily Mail, the collaboration between the two British brands is a long-term partnership that will see a total re-design of the uniform across all areas. We hear the flight attendants will wear "glamorous yet practical" clothing that will "reference 40s couture cuts and Saville Row tailoring."
The new ladies' uniform will be an iconic red Westwood suit with a very feminine silhouette, nipped in at the waist and with double pleats.
Over 7,500 cabin crew, pilots, Clubhouse staff and Virgin Holidays employees will get to wear the new uniforms, and we hear that employees were involved throughout the design process.
Passengers will receive a sneak peek of the new uniforms in July when cabin crew and ground staff trial the uniform at the airports and on board.
