New York-based designer Zac Posen and Delta Air Lines are partnering to re-imagine the current uniforms of flights attendants and customer service agents as a part of Delta’s new uniform program.
Posen will be designing uniforms for the airline’s staff, and will be advising on the uniform project for Delta’s ramp and ground support agents, Delta Cargo agents and Delta TechOps employees.
Delta’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Tim Mapes said, “With Zac’s talent and expertise, and in partnership with Delta people worldwide, we look forward to creating a timeless, fashionable and functional new collection that will continue to be a point of pride and symbol of our brand for the 170 million customers who fly with us each year.”
Over the next few months, Posen will be working with Delta employees to better understand the needs of Delta’s active workforce. The new uniforms will undergo intensive wear and testing to ensure functionality and fit before the final product is produced.
Delta employees are going to be working with Posen along the way to ensure the perfect product which is expected to debut in early 2018.
