Two things I adore go hand-in-hand... travel and fashion!

I travel regularly in my job and I've always had a fascination with air hostess uniforms. Even though air travel is not 'glamorised' today as it was in the 40's, 50's and 60's, I love a beautiful uniform and the idea of dressing up to travel. Below are some of my favourite images from the Qantas archive. Take a look through the entire slideshow, it is wonderful.  I can absolutely see why little girls dreamed of becoming an air hostess back then!

Over time, Qantas have had some amazing designers create thier uniforms - YSL, Pucci, Marc Newson, Peter Morrissy. Kit Willow created the cutest ensemble for the Qantas Prix!
