Delta attempted to revamp their â€œlookâ€ of their flight attendantsâ€™ uniforms by commissioning designer Richard Tyler to design these new frocks. While chic they are, they forgot one thing, anything over a size 18!
According to Dexinger, â€œThe Richard Tyler Collection for Delta, inspired by the era of glamorous air travel, includes a wide variety of pieces that are both fashionable and functional, including clothing, outerwear and accessories. The uniforms, which use the Delta color palette of navy blue and red, supplemented with gold, platinum and red accents, are designed to reflect timeless elegance.â€
What makes these pieces so chic? The Richard Tyler Collection for Delta features blazers, blouses, pants, skirts, wrap dresses (including the signature “Red Dress” for flight attendants), peacoat, felt hat, silk scarves and pocket squares; and the men are getting this fabulous makeover too! Designs for Delta’s male attendants receive respectfully revamped blazers, regular and French Cuff dress shirts, reversible all-weather coat and a reversible black bucket hat.
now that you understand the fabulosity being designed for Delta, you can understand itâ€™s respectful frustration of the Curvy.Confident.Chic.flight attendants when they learned certain pieces were not to e available above a size 18.
USA Today reports that the â€œNorthwest chapter of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA has filed a grievance with the world’s largest airline operator, asking it to offer the red dress up to size 28. The union hopes the grievance will go to mediation in August.â€
Again, fashion and fat clash, but the difference now is that women are feeling more comfortable, confident, and secure in their curves and are fine with them and making it work! Trust that this will not go down quietly! Ladies, I would love your thoughts!
Keep it Curvy.Confident.Chic.
