Vivienne Westwood has redesigned the full range of uniforms for the 7500 members of staff working on Richard Branson's airline.
"She was the natural choice to redesign the uniform across all areas of our business," said a statement from the airline. "Firstly because original design and sustainability are vital to both Virgin Atlantic and Vivienne Westwood."
