Vivienne Westwood For Virgin Atlantic
It's not just the flight attendants who will get to wear these exclusive Westwood designs—over 7,500 other employees (including pilots, Clubhouse staff and the cabin crew) will receive updated ensembles in 2014.
Stella McCartney for the British Olympic Team
Unlike the other major designers who created outfits for the 2012 games, Stella's outfits were used for actual competition—not just the ceremonies before and after. Despite this added level of pressure, she was more than prepared for the task, thanks to years of athleticwear-designing experience at Adidas.
Sophie Theallet's Waitress Dresses For Rose Bar
Thanks to the handiwork of this New York-based designer, the waitstaff at the Gramercy Park Hotel's Rose Bar is better dressed than most of the guests.
Ralph Lauren's Opening Ceremony Outfits for Olympic Team USA
Although RL received a great deal of flack for producing his USA team uniforms outside of, well, the USA, we still love the final results. The looks are so classically American—regardless of the manufacturer's location.
Prada for Italy's 2012 Olympic Sailing Team
Not only did Prada made the Italian National Sailing Team's Olympic uniforms, but the brand also sponsored the organization throughout the Games. Like all things Miuccia has a hand in, we want all the sporty boating outfits for our own (mainly landlocked) lives.
Mad Men For McDonald's
Maybe you haven't heard of Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, who designed new outfits for the fast food chain's UK employees last summer—but chances are you watch Mad Men, the hit show that inspired them. In addition to giving the uniforms a retro spin, the married duo kept things eco-friendly by using up-cycled materials.
Loomstate's Chipotle Uniforms
Besides creating sustainably-sourced outfits for the people stuffing your burritos, the environmentally-friendly label also turned out similar versions for customers to purchase. (Because, you know, who doesn't want to match the taco counter guy?)
Prabal Gurung For Sephora Employees
How cool is it that one of the biggest names in the biz right now took time away from dressing A-listers and models to design for cosmetologists around the country? These outfits (which debuted in April 2012) are definitely a step up from the stodgy, overly-corporate ensembles of the brand's past.
