The purpose of this study was to analyze the characteristics and images of colors in the stewardess's uniforms. For this study, 530 color samples were selected by extracting digital color data by using the Eyedropper Tool of Photoshop 7.0. The RGB color data were transformed into H V/C and the attributes of colors and tones were analyzed. The color images were analyzed with the color image scales of IRI and Shigenobu Kobayashi. As a results, purple-blue(21.7%), neutral(20.9%), red(17.9%) and yellow(10.8%) were found to be the most frequently used colors. In the tone analysis, vivid tone(18.7%) occupied high frequency and the next orders were white(17.4%), dark grayish(12.8%), light(8.5%), dark(8.1%). The color images were focused on dynamic, modern, casual, gorgeous, classic, elegance images in the color image scales of IRI and Kobayashi.
