Rakesh Jhunjhunwala’s Akasa Air Shares The First Glimpse Of Its Eco-Friendly And Stylish Crew Uniform

By  | 

India’s airline roster is geared up to welcome a new name–Akasa Air, backed by investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala. And ahead of its launch, it has finally revealed the new look of its crew uniform. Marinated with functionality, design and sustainability, the new look reveals a striking orange colour headlining the dress code. Apart from the airlines’ decision of skipping the usual navy shade, what’s even more interesting about this uniform is the choice of the silhouette. Replacing pencil skirts, shirts and overcoats, the latest dress code hopes to serve the crew’s comfort.

Becoming the first Indian airline to have introduced custom trousers, sneakers and jackets for its airline in-flight crew, Akasa Air’s dress code loans inspiration from the brand’s core belief of employee centricity and sustainability. This indeed is a refreshing new change in the industry’s staple dress code norms, that often restrict the wearer’s ease of mobility and comfort, when on board. Keeping the exact elements in mind, the well-cushioned sneakers by Vanilla Moon, have been designed using recycled rubber, and seem like a blessing for air hostesses who are  often seen serving guests in heels.

As mentioned by Delhi-based fashion designer Rajesh Pratap Singh, who created the uniform, “From concept to the final outcome, it has been an exciting journey for me to work on these designs and present one of the most unique, sustainable and functional uniforms of our times.” Offering a touch of sustainability, the uniform has been tailored using recycled polyester fabric, made out of pet bottle plastic salvaged from marine waste. The amalgamation of both style and traditional Indian nuance, extracted from the famous bandh gala, indicates the unique mix between modern and cultural design sentiments.
