The Professional Clothing Awards recognise the international uniform supply chain and reward exceptional workwear, corporate clothing and personal protective equipment. 
 
The award was presented at a ceremony in London.
 
"This is a very welcome accolade for Air Canada's new uniform collection, now proudly being worn by our employees. We are delighted their design, which projects Air Canada's and Canadian values, is clearly making a fashion statement around the world," said Andrew Yiu, Vice President, Product at Air Canada, in a news statement.  
 
"Winning a European award is gratifying as it further advances our ambition to be a Top 10 global carrier in everything we do. I thank Canadian designer Christopher Bates and Unisync for designing the new uniforms, as well as Air Canada's employees who are excellent brand ambassadors." 
 
The new uniforms are a part of a brand revamp launched by the Canadian airline earlier this year. 
 
The uniforms were designed for in-flight and airport agents, pilots, mechanics, and other workers and were described as “combining urban chic and international flair”.
 
In total, Bates outfitted all of Air Canada’s 28,000 employees in a fully coordinated 150 piece collection. 
 
The majority of the collection is charcoal grey and black, and feature red accents and accessories by Bates.
 
Air Canada equally won two Image of the Year Awards received in March from the North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors for their new uniforms including the “Best of the Best” and “Transportation, People” awards.
