Alaska Airlines Plans New Crew Uniforms
Alaska Airlines announced a new partnership with Seattle fashion designer Luly Yang that will see the carriers’ uniforms redesigned. The announcement comes shortly after the airline debuted its redesigned logo last month.
Luly Yang will be conducting focus groups with Alaska Airlines pilots, flight attendants, airport staff, aircraft technicians, and stores agents over the next few months to gain a better understanding of what needs to go into the new uniforms. Alaska says that they will take about two years to design and produce, and are expected to roll out in 2018.
Over 12,000 employees at the carrier will receive the new uniforms.
Luly Yang opened her first studio boutique in Seattle in 2000. Her portfolio currently includes couture gowns and cocktail attire, menswear, accessories, hotel uniforms, and clothing for the general public.
