In 1994, a Balenciaga designed uniform, comprising a floral blouse, skirt and fitted jacket is being adopted by SilkAir, to echo its expansion in the market and focus to reach out to business travellers in addition to holidaymakers.
A decade later, SilkAir launched the one-piece wrap dress with an oriental design created by its own cabin crew in 2004.
