Six Senses five star hotels, resorts and spas are based across the globe and are synonymous with a unique luxury experience that is authentic, personal and sustainable. In 2013 under new management, Six Senses developed a fresh corporate identity, promoting sustainability and maintaining the ecology and biodiversity in the host region. It focused on establishing consistently high standards across its business while creating partnerships with companies that share their values. Having sustainable uniforms was an important part of the Six Senses requirement, but uniforms also had to fit in with the brand identity and the diversity of the organisation. Fashionizer was selected because of its experience and expertise in the spa uniform marketplace and its proven track-record in the development of organic and natural fibre uniforms.
We had designed and supplied uniforms for spas and hotels in more than 40 countries, when it was first approached by Six Senses, but this was our first global uniform contract and involving a single branded design concept to be introduced across multiple territories. The uniform designs are inspired by the new brand colour palette of bright olive, pebble grey and pearl white and are contemporary, practical, and reflect the values of the company. The Six Senses spa uniforms are made in Fashionizer’s exclusive organic CPF fabric, and comprises skirts, trousers, jackets and tunics for therapists and spa reception staff, and includes female & male uniforms. The style of the jackets and unisex Thai trousers are influenced by Six Senses’ Thai origins.
“It was a challenging journey to have uniforms that ticked all our boxes and it was with great pleasure and excitement that we presented our new bespoke uniforms in 2014. Following the design process and wearer trial, much discussion and changes were made in order to come to the final version, which I was delighted with. Debbie and her team from Fashionizer have worked diligently and three years on, we are incredibly happy and most importantly, our staff are too! Both the look as well as the quality is fantastic and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Fashionizer for many years to come” Anna Bjurstam, Vice President, Spas and Wellness Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
