last week my trusty photographer and i zipped down to Atlanta to attend Global Runway a fashion presentation held at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. the event showcased the best of ATL Skypointe, Atlanta airports award-winning concessions program. brands represented in the fashion presentation included Brooks Brothers, Spanx, Ex Officio, and Sean John. but this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as how many retailers are housed under the airport’s roof. which is comforting to know. it seems every time i head out the door i invariably forget one essential item needed for my trip. but Atlanta Skypointe has my back when i have to shop on the fly. whether i need to replace blush, headphones, sunscreen, or earrings, there’s a retail store located in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport that can help.
our emcee for the evening was Joe Zee, former fashion director at W magazine. it was such a treat to meet him. but he wasn’t the only one who showed up at Global Runway. there were so many people hard at work behind the scenes making certain the evening ran like clockwork. and it did!
tumi luggage was on hand, showcasing the latest and greatest suitcases for travel near and far.
yours truly having a photo op on Global Runway’s red carpet. a simple color combo is always a good bet for any special occasion. so black and white was my first choice. but i added a little glitz with a black sequin skirt (old, similar here). and a simple white shirt is glammed up with eyelet. a pop of color is combined with a rainbow-colored handbag. and a gold-tone black belt always adds subtle sophistication.
MAC cosmetics were on deck with the newest lip shades for summer. plus lots of other goodies.
this video booth was the highlight of the event. Hype Lab created custom videos in just minutes.
several of the vendors showcasing their wares.
i might get used to the red carpet.

there’s always a tranquil spot where you can rest your feet for a moment or two.
a sketch artist was available churning out high fashion renditions of our outfits.
can you believe these sketches were finished in under five minutes?

as you can see Global Runway 2019 was loads of fun and a huge success. can’t wait for next year!
