Runway in The Sky: KLM Brings Fashion Show Onboard


During a flight from Amsterdam to New York on Tuesday, 4 September, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and its passengers reminisced about KLM uniforms over the years.

In the run-up to the airline’s 100th anniversary on 7 October, the aisles were transformed into a catwalk where crew members modelled the KLM uniforms and related accessories of the time.

From hats to pleated skirts and from women’s trousers to gloves – the KLM uniform has seen many faces since 1935. But it has always been elegant and stylish.

The elegance of KLM's uniforms was evident during the catwalk in the sky, when crew members showed off uniforms from 1957 to the present day. While the show mainly featured KLM clothing, there were also examples from KLC and NLM, all from Cliff’s private collection.

Of course, safety on board came first throughout the event. And passengers were informed about the unique fashion show at the start of the flight and they responded enthusiastically.

The fashion show in the sky tied in nicely with the World Fashion Week that kicks off next week in New York. But it also speaks for itself because there is much to tell about the history of the KLM uniforms.

The show is one of the run-up events KLM’s 100th anniversary. Passengers were so enthusiastic that they even gave the crew a round of applause on arrival at the airport in New York.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
