It’s not business as usual at the new JW Marriott Houston Downtown. The ultra-modern hotel opened its doors with a fashionable welcome, working with Houston designer David Peck on uniforms that go way beyond basic black.
In this week's KHOU CultureMap Moment, Channel 11 Morning News anchor Lily Jang and CultureMap editor-in-chief Clifford Pugh talk with Peck about his vision for the hotel and we get a look at uniforms that blend substance and style.
“The employees are the style setters. I want them to feel as luxurious and chic as the hotel is,” Peck said.
The uniforms include sheath and belted button down shirt dresses for women and dapper suiting options for men. Peck also provided a style book so that employees can mix and match 19 different looks.
The new JW Marriott is located at 806 Main Street.
