Finally! Fashion and glamour are making a comeback in air travel. Recently, Virgin Atlantic announced a collaboration with one of England's most iconic designers for a little style makeover. British fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood was tasked with revamping the airline's current uniforms whilst keeping the environment top of mind. Westwood created chic ensembles for both the male and female flight crew members from recycled leather, canvas and brass. The 7,500 eco-friendly uniforms are perfectly Westwood and inspired by 1940s fashions.
In celebration of this awesome collaboration, we've organized a slideshow of some of the finest flight attendant fashions from the last 60 years. From Balenciaga and Pucci to Halston and Canssini, here's a glimpse into the past of fashionable flying.
