Women pilots who fly for Qantas are no longer required to wear men’s uniforms, Mashable reported.
With more and more women pilots working for Qantas, the company decided it was time to give them their own uniforms.
Designed by Australian fashion designer Martin Grant, the new uniforms are similar to the men’s uniforms but are tailored for women’s bodies, according to Mashable.
The new women’s uniforms were introduced at a runway debut on Friday, Mashable said.
“They actually don’t mind having a uniform that’s very close to the men’s and so I’ve just feminised it in the cut; the jacket is more fitted,” Grant told Vogue Australia. “Everything is more streamlined and tailored, the pants more narrow.”
