“A Cut Above Runway Show” will take a nostalgic look back at BA’s wardrobe choices from the 1920s to the present day.

The revival of BA’s historic uniform collection is part of a long line-up of events planned during this weekend’s retro-themed festival: Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage at Southbank Centre.

The annual event celebrates the best in British music, design and style from the 1920s to the 1980s.

BA- which has flown under many different names in its 91-year history – has also changed its cabin crew uniform more than 400 times since the airline’s first scheduled flight in August 1919: an Air Transport & Travel Limited (AT&T) service from London to Paris.

Vintage at Southbank Centre runs from Friday 29 July to Sunday 31 July at the Festival Hall.

The BA uniform catwalk is scheduled on Sunday (July 31) at 6:30pm.

Day tickets from £60; many events free.
