The biggest challenge in designing this uniform was to have a workable collection to dress such a diversified team.
The solution was to have a uniform range for the concierge and corporate staff that offered enough variety for them to mix and match as they please, and still flawlessly representing the Marriott brand. The Uniform Edit cleverly came up with a classic collection of collared shirts in:
- A small gingham red and white check.
- A crisp white shirt with the red check as a contrast in the collar, cuff and button placket.
- A black with double white pinstripe which gives off a charcoal tone from the distance.
To match, is a classic wool/poly blend corporate trousers and straight skirts with red trim on the back pockets. To give them the ultimate professional appearance, there is also a vest and classic suit jacket with a luxurious red inside lining that has the matching red trim on the front pockets. The women also had the additional option of red loose-fitting viscose blouse to be tucked into their skirts or trousers. Men also had the option to wear a tie witheir two or three-piece suit.
For their stylish Motion Bar & Grill venue, we jazzed up the team with a more modern style uniform set that nicely complimented the front of house and corporate staff. They had a black long sleeve military style shirt. The black shirt also had a red contrast inside the collar, cuff, and button placket as well as contrasting red buttons that look sharp on the end of their epaulets and roll-up sleeve tabs. Shirts are perfectly paired with super comfy cotton chino pants in charcoal – always a popular choice with restaurant staff. They chose dark denim full bib aprons and to finish funky red braces were also an option, which their talented barista loves to model to his fellow coffee patrons.
Every 5-star luxury hotel doesn’t come without its grand ballroom, which is where regular upmarket functions are held. For the catering team – they are required to wear some of the corporate choices in the white shirt with red check trim shirt to pair with the black trousers and vest with red trim piping feature, which they look so elegant in as they float around the ballroom serving hors d’ oeuvres.
