World-renowned high fashion designer Barney Cheng will create its uniforms - all part of Oasis Hong Kong Airlines’ smart new way to fly. Award winning Hong Kong designer Barney Cheng is a favourite of the rich and famous with his extravagant simplicity designs featuring western and traditional Chinese themes.
Known for his custom ordered couture dresses which have even been worn to the Oscars, Cheng’s ready-to-wear collections have been carried by high end stores such as Joyce, Lane Crawford, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney’s New York and Giorgio in Beverly Hills.
This is the first time that Cheng will design an airline’s uniforms. Using only the highest quality leading-edge fabrics that guarantee comfort and practicality, Cheng said ‘The uniforms will radiate the confidence, happiness and charm of these exceptional cabin crew - keeping them stylish, comfortable and feeling absolutely fabulous as they tend to passengers. Oasis connotes a paradise of sorts and the uniform design reflects this sense of adventure in its ‘holiday workwear’ mood. By paying close attention to line, form and construction the outfits will possess a rich interesting dimension unlike any other airline’s uniforms.’
Priscilla Hwang Lee, Executive Director of Oasis Hong Kong Airlines, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with one of Hong Kong’s greatest designers - famous for his passion, creativity and blending east and west aesthetics with traditional and modern concepts. Oasis Hong Kong Airlines is not just your typical low-cost airline. We offer passengers a flexible and high quality service that pays attention to the smallest details. Uniform design plays an integral part in communicating our identity and values. By choosing Cheng’s designs we ensure the highest quality, comfort and style - creating a more enjoyable experience for our crew which translates into better-quality service for our guests.’
