easyJet unveils new designer cabin crew uniforms
Low cost airline easyJet has introduced a new cabin crew uniform designed by Jeff Banks CBE & Incorporatewear Ltd to give the budget carrier a more modern demeanour. Banks was commissioned to create a uniform which reflected the easyJet orange brand with a contemporary twist on classic styles delivering a collection of sharp tailoring to suit all shapes, sizes and ages. This saw creation of six new pieces for 4,000 staff including two dresses complimented by a new longer scarf, leather belt and leather handbag for ladies and a waistcoat and tie for men, the first such overhaul to be undertaken by the firm since 2007. Angela Mullen, easyJet’s cabin crew service & standards manager said: "We are absolutely thrilled with the new easyJet cabin crew uniform. Our crew are the face of the airline and it’s essential that they look and feel professional, presentable and confident in their uniforms every time they wear them. The new additions are stylish yet practical enabling them to go about their duties comfortably and I’m sure they’ll be worn with pride. Jeff Banks and the team at ICW Incorporatewear have done a great job!" Jeff Banks, ICW’s consultant designer said: "Incorporatewear and I are absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to work on developing easyJet’s new uniform. It looks absolutely fantastic and is a credit to the easyJet brand and reflects the importance the company gives to the appearance, well-being and comfort of its cabin crew."
