The Delta Airlines employees are getting new uniforms for the first time in over ten years, and the new uniforms were designed by none other than Zac Posen.
The official designs were revealed in a fashion show at Atlanta’s Stave Room on Tuesday. Zac shared that “This is 18 months in the making. I’ve done many collaborations in my career, but this has been the most collaborative.”
To come up with new designs, Zac actually spent some time shadowing Delta jobs to figure out what was needed as far as comfort goes, in addition to of course the style of the uniforms.
The first wear test of the new uniforms will go into effect in December for 1,000 employees, and then their feedback will be used to create any necessary changes before the line is produced in full.
The flight attendants will be able to choose from three different options, which are a v-neck dress, swing jacket, and a skirt suit. The color palette was done in: Passport Plum, Groundspeed Graphite, and Skyline Slate.
By 2018 the new uniforms will be seen on all Delta employees.
