Delta’s new uniform collection, which combines high fashion with quality and functionality, will take flight on May 29, 2018 for more than 60,000 uniformed Delta employees.
Zappos At Work will provide Delta uniformed employees an exclusive 15 percent discount on a microsite full of hundreds of uniform-compliant shoe options. Employees will also receive free shipping and free returns.
” This partnership gives us the opportunity to put our customer obsession to work,” said Joseph Grusman, Senior Director of Marketing at Zappos.com. “The Zappos At Work program brings together our dedicated customer service and our amazing product mix to serve new business partners at scale and we’re excited to include Delta in this.”
Leading New York fashion designer Zac Posen worked with Delta employees to create the exclusive uniform collection which was unveiled one year ago. Since then, more than three months of wear testing the designs and fabrics on 1,000 Delta people has led to more than 165 changes, including darkening the groundspeed graphite color of the men’s suit, re-examining the women’s blouse design and restructuring the cargo pockets.
“We couldn’t be happier about the role Delta’s New UniformDelta people played in getting these uniforms right,” Dimbiloglu said. “When we started this journey almost three years ago, we committed to leveraging employee feedback in every aspect of the new uniform program. And, when the Zac Posen team came on board, they were excited for the chance to create something that transforms the brand and incorporates thoughtful touches and changes from the very people who wear the uniforms every day.”
The contemporary line fuses bold color palettes and classic styles, while paying homage to the heritage and iconic design from decades past to elevate the look of Delta employees. And the beloved pink dress isn’t going away. Customer service agents and flight attendants will have pink options each October like Posen’s V-Neck Dress, female scarf, male and female pocket squares, and men’s ties; below-wing employees, like technicians and ramp agents, will sport pink hats.
