Space Needle Partners with Luly Yang Design Group for New Space Needle Uniforms
The iconic Space Needle is partnering with local Seattle based designer Luly Yang Design Group for new team member uniforms. Working to innovate the uniform industry toward elevating style, performance, and pride, Luly Yang brings her experience in design, architecture, and her understanding of human form, creating a one-of-a-kind Space Needle uniform collection.
“We are so pleased to bring Luly Yang’s beautiful and innovative designs to the Space Needle,” says Chief Marketing Officer Karen Olson. “The shapes and colors of the uniforms were thought out perfectly to represent the iconic Space Needle reimagined in a uniform. The Luly Yang brand champions our values of innovation, engineering, and sustainability.”
The Space Needle uniform design was inspired by the iconic shape of the building’s silhouette. The garment’s seams, color blocks, textures, and reﬂective trims were designed to mirror architectural lines while also flattering the human body. The Space Needle’s brand was referenced for the colors and logos, which were custom created for the collection, as well as the important functional requirements for different front line team members.
Seattle-based architecture ﬁrm Olson Kundig, was awarded the American Institute of Architect’s 2022 National Architecture Honor Award for their work on the Space Needle’s $100M Century Project, which served as inspiration for the custom print, creating a sporty texture that adds dimension to the garments.
“The Space Needle is an architectural landmark known across the globe, and I am honored to have been given the opportunity to create new innovative and unique uniforms for its team,” says Luly Yang, Creative Director of Luly Yang Design Group. “It is a dream come true to bring the beautiful, recognizable design details from the building into the garments themselves.”
