On October 7, 2023, Air France will celebrate its 90th anniversary. For this momentous occasion, the airline has teamed up with Xavier Ronse, the head of the Paris Opera's costume workshops, to produce a collection of five unique dresses. Each dress symbolizes a different aspect of the airline's history and operations: planes and technology, crew uniforms and fashion, advertising posters, in-flight catering and service, and design.
This distinctive collection aims to celebrate not just Air France's longevity but also its contribution to various aspects of culture and industry. From technological advancements in aviation to setting trends in crew uniforms, the airline has been a pioneer in many fields.
The dresses will be on display at the Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris from September 28 to October 10, offering visitors a chance to engage with Air France's rich history in a fresh and fashionable way.
This exhibition provides a unique opportunity for fashion enthusiasts, aviation fans, and history buffs alike to experience Air France's legacy in an entirely new light. As the airline prepares to celebrate 90 years in the sky, this collaboration with Xavier Ronse serves as a fitting tribute to its multi-faceted identity.
