Eurostar has launched new uniform designs for all of its station and onboard train staff. The uniforms, created by Jermyn Street Design, were unveiled on the nine metre tall ‘kissing couple’ statue in St Pancras International station.
The super-sized outfits on the statue were created by Sharon Osborne’s stylist, Maggie Cook.
Eurostar’s own ‘kissing couple’, train manager Adele Gent and station shift leader Simon Gent, recreated the amorous embrace at the statue’s feet.
The couple, who have recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary, met and fell in love over 10 years ago working together on the international high-speed train service.
Eurostar’s service and people director, Marc Noaro, said: “Our new uniforms signal the next chapter in Eurostar’s story and perfectly capture the glamour and romance of international high-speed rail travel.
“As Eurostar enters its twentieth year, this is a proud day for all of our teams and we are looking forward to our customer’s reactions and comments today as they catch their first glimpses.”
