The airline debuted new designer uniforms for the company's workers Wednesday in Atlanta, where Delta is headquartered.

Fashion designer Zac Posen teamed up with Delta to create the new uniforms, which will be worn by more than 60,000 Delta employees, including customer service agents, flight attendants, ramp agents and technicians.

The uniforms are a "wholly-reimagined mix" of colors, including "Passport Plum, Cruising Cardinal and Groundspeed Graphite ... Skyline Slate and Traveling Thistle."

The new designs fuse "bold color palettes and classic styles, while paying homage to the heritage and iconic design from decades past," Delta said.

New styles include a V-neck dress, peplum sweater, skirt suit for female flight attendants and customer service agents.

"We wanted Delta employees to look glamorous on the job without sacrificing functionality and style," Posen said in a statement for Delta.

The airline said the uniforms, which are set to be distributed to all crew members by 2018, are "contemporary" and "elevate the look and brand of Delta employees."

"The world's best employees deserve the best uniforms, and this new collection is classically influenced, yet modern," Delta CEO Ed Bastian said.

Posen, who also serves as a judge on "Project Runway," said he worked "alongside employees to understand how they interact with the clothes they wear" to create the designs.

Posen has already created designs for celebrities like Uma ThurmanGwyneth PaltrowClaire Danes and Rihanna, USA Today reported.

"I never expected I would have the honor to work with one of the greatest airlines in the world," Posen said. "It's humbling."

According to USA Today, pilots' uniforms did not get updated.
