“If you are a passenger in an airplane, what kind of uniform would you like to see?” is the question, which will be posted on “Olympic’s” website, where people will be able to find different flight attendants uniforms. Marfin Investment Group (MIG) announced a competition about choosing uniforms for its subsidiary, which will use the name Olympic.


According to the ad, the competition will be open and the final decision will be made by the website users, who will vote online. Greek designers, who have the right to work in Greece or in the EU, will be able to send design offers. Their offers must be about pilot, co-pilot, and flight attendant uniforms and must be sent until April 30th.


A commission will choose 3 offers, which will be uploaded on a special website online. All three offers will be awarded ?3000 and the winner will take ?30 000 and worldwide fame.


The question, which users will need to answer, is: “If you are a passenger of our airline, what kind of uniform would you like to see?” Everyone who participates in the voting process will be included in a lottery. 100 lucky passengers will receive two free tickets within a Greek or a foreign destination.


The new uniform will be either blue or blue and green, as the logo of the company allows – yellow, red, sky blue and black.


Finally, let us remind you that in the past, “Olympic’s” crew member uniforms were designed by Coco and Channel & Pierre Cardin – in an age when passengers were eating with gold-plated silverware and with candles on the little trays. Coco Channel speaks of “Olympic” from the time when Aristotelis Onassis was officially in love with Jacky Kennedy – famous for her weaknesses for polo, Channel, and the pillbox hats. On the other hand, influenced by the “mini-skirts” revolution, Pierre Cardin launches a new style in the “air fashion,” which references with space missions to the moon and geometrical influences. And even though the uniforms were very popular among the passengers, they were extremely uncomfortable for the crew members.
