Global Runway is back for the second year! We’re so excited to make the announcement on behalf of our sister company 10 Squared and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. They’ve worked diligently on bringing together six (6) social media influencers who possess great style and make a presence in the global fashion community. Global Runway’s guest host will be none other than InStyle Magazine’s Fashion and Beauty Editor-At-Large Kahlana Barfield-Brown ( @kahlanabarfield) . Along with having the dream job of the industry, she’s also a fashion and beauty influencer on social media.
