From the mini-skirts of the hippy era to the latest Burberry aviator jacket and other chic items featured at Fashion Week, no other industry has a closer relationship to fashion than aviation. Airlines around the world time and again commission top high fashion designers to make the most stylish aviation uniforms for them. Here are some notable haute couturiers that have made cabins and airport terminals legitimate fashion show catwalks. For more information visit Runway27.
