Vivienne Westwood design takes to the skies on Virgin Atlantic

 

On Tuesday 1st July, leading British designer Vivienne Westwood officially launched her much anticipated red hot uniform collection for Virgin Atlantic.

Following the announcement of the partnership last year, Sir Richard Branson, Dame Vivienne Westwood, and Blondie join a host of famous faces at a major red carpet event to see the grand unveiling.

Vivienne Westwood has redesigned the iconic cabin crew look with an elegant, and feminine red jacket inspired by the “Bettina” jacket designed in the early 90’s with a matching red pencil skirt with a cheeky dart to the rear.

Vivienne Westwood’s design references her enduring interest in 40s French couture cutting, with a double breasted ‘drape coat’ for women, and updating the classic red shoe with Westwood’s iconic hourglass heel.

Male crew will be provided with a sharp Saville Row inspired three piece suit with a contemporary twist in a deep burgundy Oxford weave wool.

Over 7,500 staff including cabin crew, pilots, Clubhouse staff and Virgin Holidays employees will receive the new uniform consisting of 22 pieces in total which has been trialled across airports and on board over the past year.

Blondie and Goldie entertained guests at the Village Underground in Shoreditch before passengers will be able to see the uniform onboard Virgin Atlantic flights and airports from 1st September later this year.
