Qantas amenity kit collab with Australian fashion designer 

Qantas Airways has partnered with Australian fashion designer Rebecca Vallance and Watermark on new amenity kits. The collaboration celebrates the reintroduction of flights from Sydney to New York for the first time since 2020.

The amenity kits have been designed for Qantas Business class travellers and pay homage to New York. The partnership has been developed to drum up awareness of the new route.

Each piece incorporates Vallance’s Avenue Astoria Collection print, which is a nod to the glamorous characters of New York’s Waldorf Astoria in the 1970s, including Elizabeth Taylor and Diana Ross.

The collaborative Qantas x Rebecca Vallance designs feature a monogram of the Qantas ‘Roo’ and Vallance’s logo. The palette of blues and Art Deco undertones reflect the heritage, glamour and sophistication of the Waldorf Astoria’s hotel architecture.

The amenity kits are on all flights from Australia and New Zealand to New York and vice versa for the months of June and July.

“Working with Qantas is a dream come true. Flying the flag for Australian fashion on a global stage and partnering with the national carrier — what an absolute honour,” said Vallance.

“New York is also one of my favourite cities in the world and it’s a great opportunity to not only promote New York as an amazing travel destination but also incredible as an Australian designer to work with the national carrier on their collectable pyjamas and amenity kit,” added Vallance.
