PIA to glam up air hostesses with Nomi Ansari’s latest creations



The national flag carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), which once had Pierre Cardin design the uniform for its cabin crew, will now sport local designer Nomi Ansari’s creations after he won a fashion face-off for the top honour.

The face-off took place in Karachi with some of the country’s top designers presenting their prospective uniforms for the flag carrier at what was dubbed the ‘Runway Collection 2015′.

Designers, who were participating pro bono, included the likes of Maheen Khan, Shamaeel Ansari, Sonya Batla, Amir Adnan, Nida Azwer, Ismail Farid, Omer Farooq, Fahad Hussayn, Maheen Karim, Misha Lakhani, Sania Maskatiya, Yasmeen Sheikh, Shamoon Sultan of Khaadi, Ali Xeeshan and Hasan Shahryar Yasin – popularly known as HSY.

The designers showcased concepts for PIA’s new cabin crew look, including air hostesses and stewards.

At the end of the day, it was a split decision. Nomi Ansari’s outfit was chosen for the air hostesses. The dress will be paired with caps and scarves from Sania Maskatiya. Their coats will be by Yasmeen Sheikh.

For the men, they will wear Omar Farooq’s creations.
