LONDON, April 23 (UPI) -- Renowned fashion designer Bruce Oldfield says he was "delighted" to jazz up the uniforms worn by 67,000 McDonald's employees in Britain.

Oldfield's designs have been worn by elite fashion models and celebrities such as Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Catherine Zeta Jones.

He has designed black suits with white or off-white colored shirts -- with a choice of three ties -- for McDonald's managers, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

For hourly employees, Oldfield has designed a uniform of black and mocha shirts and caps to be worn with black pants, a black belt and an apron.

"I was delighted to be asked to redesign such an iconic and instantly recognizable uniform," Oldfield said.

Oldfield has designed for rank-and-file demographics before, having outfitted staff at Wembley Stadium in London.

"It's a mark of respect for our staff that an internationally renowned designer has created the uniform especially for them," McDonald's spokesman David Fairhurst said.
