Well my friends, the time has COME!
The eccentric and brilliant Vivienne Westwood has teamed up with Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic Airlines to re-design its iconic red uniforms. It is true. Vivienne, being a strong advocate of eco-friendly materials, plans on designing the uniforms out of recycled brass, recycled canvas, reused roadside banners, and unused leather-cut offs. In the official announcement of the partnership, it was expressed that her goal is “a futuristic look, which references her enduring interest in 1940s French couture cutting techniques as well as the Savile Row tailoring heritage.” Is she kidding? She is the coolest. Also, the uniforms will be produced through the Ethical Africa Program in collaboration with the International Trade Center.
The women's uniform will of course be bight red and consist of a body-hugging blazer and pencil skirt.

In other words, when a flight attendant comes to your seat and asks you what you want to drink, you are going to be in shock. The men’s uniform will be a jaw dropping burgundy three-piece suit. Do I need to say more? No. Vivienne also plans on making bags for the employees out of the same recycled materials. I can only imagine what they will look like.
