UK low-cost carrier easyJet has saved a few pennies by getting its own cabin crew to design their uniforms. The new designs do not look bad either.
The new easyJet is a far cry from its first uniforms 12 years ago when it was founded. The casual 1995 look was a simple combination of black jeans and orange polo shirt, with "I’m an easy crew member" embossed on the back.
Here are some more pictures of the new designs.
EasyJet says its cabin crew were invited to take part in a competition to design the new uniform that would enable them to feel comfortable and confident at work. "Following hundreds of entrees, three made it to a short list and cabin crew then voted for their favourite," says the carrier.
According to the airline, the winning design, "Formal and Fabulous", was the combined effort of three cabin crew - AnnMarie Cuffe based at Liverpool; Joanne Todd and Kurt Wilson both based at Gatwick.
This design can be the latest addition to "Uniform Freak" Cliff Muskiet's collection of over 600 airline uniforms past and present.
