ODD - For the Love of Uniforms

Most people have a habit of collecting something and some people have odd or unique collections. Cliff Muskiet's collection is a little extreme but also strangely fascinating. Cliff collects Air stewardess uniforms and his collection currently contains 758 uniforms from over 300 different airlines.


It is a fantastic way to view those little quirks and trends that make their way into these work uniforms. Some are really smart, some a little garish and others are quite unusual.

Looking at various cultures in this way is great fun and you can literally see the trends of the decade epitomised within each uniform. The power dressing 80s are evident in uniforms from the period.


You will notice the pussy bow blouse has always been a hit with these uniforms, as has the pencil skirt. But in the sixties and seventies, I am quite shocked by how short the skirts were.


So if you have some time to spare, why not take a look. You might just find some inspiration there.
