Hanae Mori

Japan Air Lines stewardess uniform by Hanae Mori 1970 Collection of SFO Museum Gift of Thomas G. Dragges

Japanese designer Hanae Mori (b. 1926) started her fashion career in Tokyo for the film
industry in the 1950s and began presenting haute couture in Paris in 1977. This “fifth
generation” JAL uniform was designed in 1970 for the airline’s first wide-body jet service. The
dark blue polyester knit mini-dress was a striking departure from JAL’s earlier uniforms and is
accessorized with a red belt, a semi-rigid bumper brim hat, and a two-tone silk scarf.
