Qantas Unveils New Uniform

Australian flag carrier Qantas has unveiled a new uniform designed by Martin Grant, to be worn by 12,600 employees from early 2014.
CEO Alan Joyce said he was proud to launch a new uniform design – the first for the airline in ten years.  He said:  “This is a new look for a new chapter for Qantas.  The uniform speaks of Australian style on the global stage.
“After an extensive selection and design process, Martin Grant has created a uniform that is fresh, modern and bold – a uniform that our employees are going to enjoy wearing.”
There are 35 garments for males and female employees.  Against French navy suiting and white shirting, variations of the Qantas red – ruby red and fuchsia pink – are featured in diagonal stripes, recreating the Qantas triangle across tops and dresses for women, and on ties for men.
Female employees will wear a combination of a dress, tops, a suit and a trench overcoat, alongside a scarf and a trilby hat.  The male suiting is neat and structured.
