Martin Grant to create concept look for Qantas team
Jun '12
Qantas announced the appointment of Martin Grant as the leading Australian designer to develop the new Qantas uniform.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said Martin Grant will use his creative vision and 30 years experience to develop concepts for the new uniform for cabin crew and uniformed employees.

“I am pleased to welcome Martin Grant to the Qantas team. Martin excelled in what was a rigorous selection process and we now look forward to working with Martin to develop a new uniform,” Mr Joyce said.

“Martin's work reflects modern and contemporary designs and we were extremely impressed with his appreciation for the Qantas brand and his enthusiasm to design the next instalment of the Qantas uniform.”

Martin Grant said it was a true honour to be selected as the new Qantas uniform designer.

“As an Australian, I'm proud to be working with such an iconic Australian brand. It will be wonderful to see the Qantas teams wearing my design across Australia and in cities all over the world,” Mr Grant said.

“I've already had the opportunity to engage with a number of employees across the business and I look forward to working with them again as we develop the uniform.”

The next stage in the design process will see Martin engaging with the Qantas uniform panel and collaborating with Qantas employees to evolve concepts and designs.

The uniform panel consists of a dedicated team of uniformed employees representing their colleagues across the business, to provide feedback on elements such as design, wear and comfort.

Qantas aims to have its international and domestic cabin crew and ground staff sporting the new design in 2014.

The Qantas uniform has been re-designed nine times since 1959 and the new uniform will replace the existing design by Peter Morrissey, which was introduced in 2003.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Martin Grant launched his first ready to wear collection 30 years ago in 1982. Since then, Martin has received numerous accolades and fashion awards for his designs. Martin is based in Paris and is internationally recognised for his bespoke tailoring, simplicity of lines and timeless silhouettes. His collections are sold across the world in Australia, Japan, France, New Zealand, Italy and the United States.
