How Virgin Atlantic designed the most sustainably stylish uniforms in the sky

Virgin Atlantic uniforms have always been much loved by staff and customers and to keep them as stylish and sustainable as possible the team collaborated with Vivienne Westwood for their 22 new pieces – all with the environment in mind.

Here’s a few of the reasons why we love them so much:

  • 25 per cent of the new pieces are made from recycled polyester yarn (made from used plastic bottles)
  • Suit fabrics have a ‘nano finish’ which extends their life and enables clothes to retain colour and finish for longer
  • All items were developed with Closed Loop Recycling – a new technology that takes worn polyester clothing and turns it into fibres that can be woven into new fabrics
Virgin Atlantic employees model their uniform
