Qantas has become the latest airline to revamp its uniform, with a brand new design unveiled to the public earlier today.

The latest uniform has been created by Australian designer Martin Grant and marks the airline’s first uniform revamp for 10 years.

You’ll find an image of the uniform on this page and the rest have been uploaded as a photo album on The Aviation Writer’s Facebook page, including some from a fashion show to unveil the new look – click here to view them.

"This is a new look for a new chapter for Qantas,” stated Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, adding that the uniform will be worn by 12,600 cabin crew and ground employees from early 2014.

“The new uniform speaks of Australian style on the global stage,” he added.

Martin Grant has designed 35 garments for female and male employees, which were developed in collaboration with Qantas’ customer-facing uniformed departments, including cabin crew and ground employees.

    The best cabin crew uniforms that I have ever seen were Balair in the 1980s. They were a grey and a colour I think they called peach. They had trouser skirts, I think called Callots. Very lady like and very smart when working in a cabin.
