Delta has chosen Zac Posen, creative director at Brooks Brothers signature women´s collection and accessories and a judge on Lifetime´s Project Runway, to design uniforms for the airlines´ above-wing employees, the company said.
Posen designed uniforms for Delta´s 60,000 employees, including airport customer service, Delta Sky Club and in-flight service employees, while consulting on the uniform project for below-wing airport customer service, Delta cargo, GSE maintenance and Delta tech ops employees.
Posen and his team participated in and collected feedback from employee focus groups and job shadowed for every job function, both of which he says were instrumental in the design process.
Delta´s new uniforms will be revealed October 18 at the airline´s fashion show in Atlanta and will roll out system wide in 2018.
Delta Air Lines serves nearly 180 million customers each year. Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to 319 destinations in 57 countries on six continents. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta operates a mainline fleet of more than 800 aircraft.
