Hartsfield-Jackson hosts fashion event with 'InStyle' editor Kahlana Barfield

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) will present Global Runway 2018, a fashion presentation and retail pop-up experience on Wednesday, May 16. Hosted by InStyle Magazine Editor Kahlana Barfield, the retail offerings are just a few that represent ATL Skypointe, a program designed for guests to shop, dine and explore ATL. This year, guests will experience an expanded industry-driven fashion experience, which will include a silent auction to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure.
In its second year, Global Runway will feature 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 will highlight 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,” said 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.”
