Each day, hotels collect loads of data—from their PMS, reservation systems, benchmarking and pricing resources, social media, and more—and each day, they’re left to sort through that mountain of data, searching for a nugget of actionable information.
Well, it’s 2016. The age of “Big Data” and “The Internet of Everything.” It should be easy for hotels to understand their data and make intelligent and informed decisions for their business, yet it’s not. Instead, hoteliers are left with unwieldy spreadsheets, information overload, and irrelevant, static data. We had to do something about that.
In Berlin, SnapShot founders David Turnbull and Michael Heinze assembled an international team of industry insiders, united under the simple goal of making it easier to manage hotels.

At Dresscode Uniforms, our aim is to rejuvenate the hospitality uniform industry through the use of stylish design, quality fabrics and comfortable garments.

The hospitably industry is in an era of change, and from the way we Dresscode see things, the traditional uniform is long due a makeover. In utilising quality, cost-effective fabrics and modern design, we are shifting the status quo.

Designer and Founder of Dresscode, Diana Christie, studied fashion design at Parsons Paris and landed invaluable jobs within big fashion names such as Burberry and Roland Mouret.

With design and fabric a constant in Diana's everyday life, she recognised an unmet market need for well fitting, stylish uniforms for the hospitality industry. Enter; Dresscode.

Dresscode proudly holds international hotel brands amongst its clientele - names who are eager and ready to stand out from their competition. In boosting staff confidence with great looking garments, customers, in turn, receive a heightened personelle experience... and first impressions are key.

Dresscode offers a complimentary initial consultation where the unique uniform needs and vision are discussed, and ideas developed. If you wish to organise a meeting, please contact us here:
