On Thursday 21 March, Groupe ADP held a colourful fashion show to unveil the new collection of professional Paris Aéroport outfits to the hundreds of Group employees present at its headquarters. The collection, designed by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, will be rolled out in terminals on 11 June.
Elegance that lends itself to excellence
Groupe ADP has chosen Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to update the entire wardrobe of the Group’s commercial, technical and medical teams. For the next few years, this new, resolutely modern, chic and Parisian collection will symbolise the new Group welcome policy.
Before donning their brand new uniform for this fashion show, the Group’s employees each visited the airport’s shops to thoroughly try out the line of workwear designed by the French fashion designer.
One new wardrobe, 112 items, 50 professions
Designing and creating the new Paris Aéroport uniforms entails dressing employees in close to 50 highly varied professions, from welcome staff to runway operators, electricians and nurses.
The men and women among staff concerned (2,800 items distributed among 40% of the group’s workforce), have benefitted from some somewhat innovative articles presented in a collection of 112 pieces.
“I have always enjoyed creating work clothes, which are a label of authenticity. The challenge here was to design outfits that are both elegant and practical. This evening (21 March), I wanted these clothes to be the embodiment of the people who are going to them wear and I am grateful to them for being my ambassadors over the next few years.”
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, fashion designer
“The story of the new uniforms started in 2016, when the new brand was launched. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac was our preferred choice because of his talent as a creator, his ability to listen and his personal investment.”
Augustin de Romanet, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Groupe ADP
