Delta Airlines and Zac Posen Team Up to Dress Flight Attendants Better Than You

If you’re a flight attendant and a fashion head, it’s a great time to be alive. Delta Airlines has brought fashion designer Zac Posen aboard to design new uniforms for the company’s flight attendants and airport customer service agents.

Posen will also serve as an advisor on the uniforms for Delta’s ramp and ground support agents, Delta Cargo agents and Delta TechOps employees.

Don’t expect to see the Posen-designed uniforms at your airport gate just yet. The targeted release date is set for sometime in 2018. During the next few months, Posen will be consulting with Delta employees about what they want from their uniforms and then prototypes will be tested for functionality and fit before the final collection is approved.

This isn’t the first time an airline has partnered with a high-end designer. Vivienne Westwood designed uniforms for Virgin Atlantic, but there were complaints from flight crews about the fit of the pencil skirts and heels, which caused blisters.

Hopefully Delta and Posen avoid this. We’ll be aboard checking it out!

It’s nice to see airlines wanting to evoke some style into their uniforms and I’m sure the employees appreciate that well-known red carpet designers are being hired for the job.
