Vivienne Westwood, legendary, slightly out-there British fashion designer, is set for take-off, partnering with Richard Branson and re-designing the iconic lipstick red Virgin Atlantic crew uniforms. According to the Daily Mail,
“The collaboration between the two British brands is a long-term partnership which will see a total re-design of the uniform across all areas.
Known for their pristine work attire and lashings of red lippie, the trolley dolly’s will be kitted out in glamorous yet practical clothing, which will reference 40s couture cuts and Saville Row tailoring. The ladies will don an iconic red Westwood suit with a very feminine silhouette, nipped in at the waist and with double pleats. While the men will wear a three-piece Saville Row suit in a rich burgundy colour.”
Over 7,500 lucky members of staff including cabin crew, pilots, Clubhouse staff and Virgin Holidays employees will be kitted out in the stylish new uniforms from the iconic designer and employees have been 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.
