Vivienne Westwood Designs Uniforms For Virgin Atlantic

Dame Vivienne Creates Eco-Friendly Uniforms for Virgin Atlantic

When Dame Vivienne Westwood met Richard Branson through her former husband Malcolm McLaren years ago, she had no idea it would lead to a such a grand fashion proposition. It seems that Westwood was asked by the business mogul to design the next set of uniforms for his 7,500 person Virgin flight staff for 2014.

The red and black futuristic outfits have been created out of recycled materials like polyster yarn and canvas, as Westwood is super eco-concious. Over the weekend at the Vogue festival, she said, "I really think that Richard Branson has really good motives for everything he does. Fashion — actually let's call it clothing, because most of it isn't fashion — is one of the biggest polluters, it must be with all that landfill. My main focus is quality, rather quantity, and I've been saying to people, 'Buy less, choose well, make it last', Rather than just keep sucking things up."

The women's looks are feminine with a sleek silhouette whilst the male styles are more formal, with the cabin members wearing a three piece suit. How fun is it going to be to fly Virgin surrounded by so much style! Are you excited to see the new outfits next year?
