The innovative fashion minds of the Timo Weiland brand - Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein and Donna Kang will lead the uniform design process from ideation to final creation and production using inspiration from their own travels as well as meeting with team members at Crowne Plaza properties. The uniform design and launch of Momentum by Timo Weiland is one of the many ways that the Crowne Plaza brand is creating distinctive and sophisticated designs to Make Business Travel Work for today’s modern business travelers.

Timo Weiland added: “The Timo Weiland designed Crowne Plaza brand uniforms for men and women embody a signature classic prep style with a modern, tech twist. The designs are elegant and handsome with ease-of-movement in the tailoring and refined details. The color palette, textures, and silhouettes set the tone aligning with the design–led philosophy exemplified by the interiors of Crowne Plaza properties.”
