We are delighted to announce that Emilia Wickstead has been named as the new uniform designer for Air New Zealand.
The project will see Emilia Wickstead join iconic designers including Christian Dior and Nina Ricci in designing uniforms for the airline, and will bring Emilia’s signature elegance and commitment to the art of a well-dressed life to global audiences.
“I could not be prouder to have been selected as Air New Zealand’s next uniform designer. This is a true passion project for me; one that further connects me with my homeland of Aotearoa, and the community and places that I love.
My approach to the uniform centres around a deep respect for New Zealand’s cultural heritage. First and foremost, it is inspired by people. I’m a big believer that clothing can be transformative, uplifting and empowering, and my hope is that the new uniforms will instill a sense of pride and purpose in Air New Zealand’s incredible, world-class team.”
- Emilia Wickstead
The Emilia Wickstead Air New Zealand uniforms will be revealed at a later date and will be worn by Air New Zealand’s nearly 6,000 cabin crew, front of house ground staff, and pilots.
