The Cabin Mod­els

Slogan - - COVER STORY -

In 1966, Pierre Cardin, the renowned French fash­ion designer, came up with the leg­endary fawn and moss green sum­mer and win­ter uni­form for PIA. The uni­form con­sisted of a short, easy fit­ting “A” line tu­nic, slim-line trousers and imag­i­na­tively moulded du­patta that not only cov­ered heads but also turned heads. The uni­form be­came an in­stant hit and the slim-line trousers im­me­di­ately were dubbed as ‘PIA Pa­ja­mas’. Fash­ion-con­scious young ladies, all across Pak­istan, copied Cardin’s de­sign ea­gerly. This popular uni­form de­sign was used by the air­line from 1966 to 1975.
