Inside the Air New Zealand ‘Clothes Hangar’

One of Studio Gascoigne’s most rewarding projects in recent years was ‘the Clothes Hangar’, designed to help Air New Zealand cabin crew, managers and ground staff get fitted for their new uniforms, designed by Dame Trelise Cooper

This behind the scenes video inside the clothes hangar shows how staff chose their uniform and were given advice on grooming, makeup and presentation, all set in a special ‘hangar’ purpose built for the task.

The response from Air New Zealand staff, management and uniform designer Trelise Cooper, was tremendous and all were ‘blown away’ by the experience.

But your first step on the journey is either stuck in front of your computer (just like being at the office) or at your local travel store, which probably looks more like an office than a shop.

You know those places – a few desks in front of posters of tropical locations, packed with screeds of boringly presented information (most of if completely irrelevant to you). The whole experience may just burst your bubble!

Here you can not only get inspired browsing a variety of media, but also book to go to the places you’ve heard about and get the feel of what it’s going to be like when you get there. And here you can also start building your own journey in your own digital ‘Journey Book’, on your phone or tablet, so you can share it and have a tangible ‘map’ of your journey.Continue Reading..
