Posen said he wanted to do it for a variety of reasons, and was inspired by his love of travel and his belief in the power of a good uniform. The company and its employees wanted a change and Posen was the one to provide it: “These are people who have multiple tasks to do in their jobs. It takes great mental and physical concentration to do those tasks, and to be poised at the same time.” Says Posen, “How you dress helps heighten your performance.”

Delta Airlines’ very first uniforms were designed by Paramount Picture’s chief designer and Academy Award winner, Edith Head, in 1959. Later, in 2006, Richard Tyler designed the current styles, which Posen will replace. Posen heard feedback from 20,000 employees and designed with durability in mind. Not to mention style. Of their feedback that the old uniforms were too frumpy, Posen worked to make the lines of the new ones elegant and modern: “Making all bodies look beautiful is really key,” he said.

Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters – Caring, sharing, every little thing that we are wearing … All kinds of weather we stick together, the same in the rain or sun.
