I can’t help but love aviation fashion. I was a complete sucker for “Pan Am
,” and before that, “View from the Top
,” and just about any photograph of a sharply dressed stewardess gets me all tingly in the costuming department. How about you?
I just learned about a charity fashion show put on by British Airways Heritage – I wish I could have gone! Though less flamboyant than some of the mid-century American uniforms, there is such a chicness to BA’s uniforms through the decades. Get a load of these beauties…
The “Fashion Through the Age of Aviation” event showcased historic uniforms and also raised money for BA’s program “Flying Start,” in support of Comic Relief. Historic Fashion AND a good cause? Yes please!
If you’re interested in learning more about it (and maybe be inspired to throw a similar event), check out the BA historic uniform gallery, read about Flying Start, and see some photos from the fashion show itself.
