When I fly today back to London (had to change flight from Heathrow to Gatwick due to argy bargy) I will be disappointed by the uniform. I long for the days of designs that said flirty and fashion. This BEA uniform was designed by John Cavanagh. Cavanagh was born in Ireland and ended up working for the couturier Edward Molyneaux before setting up his own fashion house. Whilst many a design house gets reborn with French and Italian heritage, the British ones seem to remain firmly in the past. Shame.
