The Scene: Global Runway Fashion Presentation and Pop-up Experience 2018

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) presented Global Runway 2018, a fashion presentation and retail pop-up experience to kick off the 2018 summer season! Hosted by InStyle Magazine’s Editor Kahlana Barfield, over 250 guests experienced a few of the retail offerings that represent ATL Skypointe, a program designed for guests to shop, dine and explore ATL. This year’s engagement also ushered in a new group of Style Ambassadors, including, yep, you
guessed it – me! Also, sharing the honor of being inducted into the elite fraternity, were some of my IG faves @layllahstyle @therealshaha and @chinchillyonstyle.


In its second year, Global Runway featured four U.S. retail brands: Spanx, ExOfficio, Brooks Brothers and Sean John, which is celebrating their 20th anniversary. Also bridging the gap between beauty and style, the event highlighted national brands MAC Cosmetics, Michael Kors,
Bijoux Terner and XpresSpa via a pop-up shop.

“Each year, ATL serves over 103 million passengers, and many of them are unaware of our award-winning concessions program,”
— Airport Concessions Marketing Manager Pamela Simmons.

“In addition to being a global transportation hub, ATL is also a hub for quality global brands and Global Runway is designed to showcase these brands and raise the awareness of all that the world’s busiest airport has to offer.” Check out the photos and let me know what you think!
