United Airlines is taking a fashionable approach to its new uniforms. According to WWD, the airline has tapped fashion designer Tracy Reese to create updated looks for its female flight attendants and female customer service representatives.
Reese, who’s known for her flirty dresses and fun prints and has been designing women’s clothing under her own label since 1998, made the following statement: “For me as a designer, there is no prouder moment than seeing amazing women wearing my designs while accomplishing the many important endeavors required of each day. I look forward to continuing the United tradition of excellence and style with some added Tracy Reese flair.”
However, the female employees aren’t the only ones who will get a stylish update to their uniforms. United has also brought on classic American brand Brooks Brothers to design uniforms for the male flight attendants and male customer service representatives as well as all United pilots. As for uniforms for ramp service, technical operations and catering employees, United has tapped workwear-inspired brand Carhartt.
Luxury luggage brand TUMI will also be providing the luggage for the airline’s flight attendants. We think it’s safe to say that United’s employees will definitely be traveling in style! While there isn’t a preview of the uniforms yet, the newly designed looks are expected to roll out in 2020.
