The Empire State Building Observatory unveils a new host uniform with designer Peyman Omai


New York–(working wire) — Today, the Empire State Building unveiled a newly designed observatory host costume to add the final touch to its $165 million re-imagining of the observatory experience. More than 100 observatory hosts and gift shop attendants will be dressed in the works of renowned fashion designer Peyman Umay, who has worked for more than two years to incorporate the Empire State Building’s iconic Art Deco style and complement the colors of the observatory’s expansive galleries.

“Empire State Realty Trust Chairman, President and CEO Anthony E. “The new design is an authentic, fresh version of the building’s popular Art Deco style and works well with the existing finishes throughout the observatory.”

The four-piece gray “Empire Steel” uniform—featuring “City View Blue” accents on the lapels, interchangeable collars, and asymmetrical pocket flap—was chosen in a vote by the observatory’s social media followers to replace the previous one-piece outfit. Maroon color. Stylish details reference the building’s architectural heritage with custom embroidered patches, printed ties, and laser-cut metal buttons. Gold gears and wheels, a nod to the Fifth Avenue Lobby’s masterfully restored 23-karat gold ceiling, line the jackets and jackets. Observatory caps keep the classic service cap shape with the updated “Empire Steel” and “City View Blue” colored track, which is found mostly throughout the Observatory experience.

““The change is great, and the look is much more modern than we’ve had before,” said Robert Gross, who has served as host of the Empire State Building Observatory for nearly 25 years. “These uniforms have the classic ESB feel with a renewed sense of style.”

Peiman Umai – a fashion design house specializing in high-end menswear and womenswear – consulted the Empire State Building Observatory team through the process from design concept to completed product. Uniforms are fitted and adjusted in the Empire State Building’s Uniform Room.

“The new Empire State Building uniform is a flawless blend of the building’s iconic past and a futuristic vision. said designer Peiman Umay. “My team and I focused on creating more than just a uniform – rather an unmistakable sense of clothing – featuring modern design details to enhance ESB’s unalterable brand identity, reflecting the true spirit of this archetype. In most organic alignments between two brands, this feels about right. It simply feels magical. For this dream trip, I am grateful.”

To celebrate the debut of the new design, the Empire State Building’s lights will glow blue on January 24.
