  3. Qantas Pucci Uniform
    1974 - 1987

    Qantas Heritage Collection

Its feather pattern and bright colours were chosen to represent freedom, youth, 'flower power' and Australian topography. The absence of a hat was a deliberate break from past practices - a sign that the formalities of yester-year were being abandoned.

    1973 - 1987

    Qantas Heritage Collection

    The spectacularly colourful uniform worn by Qantas Flight Service Directors from 1973 - 1987 symbolised the optimistic mood prevalent in Australia as it forged an identity independent of its colonial past. The vibrant burnt orange of the blazer and yellow shirt alluded to the bright Australian sunlight and desert landscapes, thereby breaking with the tradition for male cabin crew to wear sombre uniforms reminiscent of British shipping stewards.
