The designer, who has previously worked on cabin crew uniforms for Etihad and Alitalia, said:

“When I started to design for Turkish Airlines, the first thing that inspired me was Istanbul.”

“This city has been a melting pot for art and civilization for centuries and has a rare richness as a common heritage of many cultures.”

“I wanted to bring elements from traditional calligraphy and mosaics together with the new interpretations of Turkish motifs, which emphasize modern lines, into foulards and ties to reflect a contrast and duality.”

The deep red and anthracite grey uniform features traditional patterns found in artisanal Turkish glassware, ceramics, and calligraphy, alongside contemporary textures and details.

Take a closer look and you’ll find shapes and hues inspired by the Istanbul Bosphorus, where a new ‘flow detail’ has been created to symbolize the dynamic energy flowing through the Turkish city, as an intersection between East and West.

To unveil the new look, the national carrier teamed up with British photographer and artist, Miles Aldridge to shoot the new Turkish Airlines cabin uniform collection in the city’s most iconic spots.

These new uniforms will be worn by the crew following the opening of the Istanbul New Airport, which is the new home of the flag carrier airline.
