Air France marks debut as DC Fashion Week sponsor

Air France

In an unexpected yet intriguing fusion of industries, the European airline giant Air France has made its debut as a sponsor at the 2023 DC Fashion Week.

While the worlds of fashion and aviation may not seem intrinsically linked, the airline industry has a crucial need for stylish and functional uniforms, both in-flight for cabin crews and on the ground for gate and check-in agents.

The decision to sponsor DC Fashion Week stems from Air France’s commitment to uniforms that serve their practical purpose and embody the airline’s brand essence of elegance, glamour, and contemporary style.

This marks the airline’s inaugural sponsorship of DC Fashion Week, following a firsthand experience by their representative earlier in the year.

According to Rodger DiPasca, the brand and marketing director for Air France-KLM USA, “This is a fantastic fashion show. There’s a great collection of diverse designers from different places throughout the world.”

This diversity aligns seamlessly with Air France’s global reach, connecting passengers to over 200 destinations worldwide.

Air France plays a significant role in connecting the United States to Africa, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region, serving as a bridge between continents.

The synergy between Air France’s legacy in Africa and the presence of designers hailing from countries like Morocco and Nigeria at DC Fashion Week is not lost on the airline.

“Many designers are drawing inspiration from African culture and fashion, reinforcing the connection between Air France and the world of African fashion.”

What sets Air France apart, according to DiPasca, is their commitment to elegance as a journey. From the comfort of their seats to the quality of meals and beverage services, Air France strives to provide a premium experience for its passengers from check-in to disembarkation.

Air France’s message to the fashion world is clear: “Consider Air France for your travels to Paris and beyond.”

With a 90-year history as a solid airline and a rich legacy of collaborating with renowned fashion houses like Christian Dior, Valencia, Nina Ricci, and more recently Christian Lacroix for their uniforms, Air France is poised to make an enduring mark in both the aviation and fashion landscapes.

As they continue to connect the world, Air France seeks to inspire travelers to embark on their journey of elegance.
